The (ex post) real interest rate. With the exception of the real interest rate, these variables are genuine ‘‘shocks’’ in the sense that they are typically stationary and tend to revert to their mean quite rapidly. This distinguishes them from the ‘‘baseline variables’’ used in Blanchard and Wolfers (2000), for example.
Coordination refers to mechanisms whereby the aggregate employment implications of wage determination are taken into account when wage bargains are struck. Coordination may be achieved if wage bargaining is highly centralized, as in Austria, or if there are institutions, such as employers’ federations, that can assist bargainers to act in concert even when bargaining itself ostensibly occurs at the level of the ﬁrm or industry, as in Germany or Japan (see Soskice 1991). It is worth noting that coordination is not therefore the same as centralization, which refers simply to the level at which bargaining takes place (plant, ﬁrm, industry, or economywide).
