Employment Patterns in a Capital-Rich, Labor-Poor Country: Qatar as a Case Study
Looney, Robert E.
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to examine the dynamics of employment creation in a small labour-importing country, Qatar. The main findings of the study suggest that a general decline in worker productivity has taken place in the country. This decline is evidenced primarily by the lack of a strong link between increases in employment and corresponding increases in output. In part, this phenomenon reflects the excessive retention and even expansion of the number of public sector workers, during a period of contraction of employment opportunities in the mixed (and presumably private) sectors.
