Abstract [en]

This thesis uses panel data on six countries over the period 1965-2010 to estimate the effects of international trade and changes in production on the labour share of income in small high-income economies in the EU. Estimations are done using data on the whole period as well as two split samples covering the years 1965-1985 and 1986-2010. The results give evidence that international trade has had a negative impact on the labour share. Technological progress is suggested to have had a negative impact on the labour share for the full sample. This forms evidence for technological progress to have been capital-augmenting.
