This book consists of articles written by twenty authors, including three eminent academicians from Australia and Britain. It provides first-hand information on the National Wages Council (NWC), and its contributions -- as well as those of tripartism -- as an instrument of economic growth. The book is divided into six parts. Part I introduces the book. Part II provides details about the NWC, its operations and its structure. Part III covers the macroeconomic impact of the NWC, including the impact on productivity, competitiveness, investment and growth. Part IV covers the impact of the NWC on wages and the wage system in Singapore. Part V provides a theoretical perspective on the importance of the NWC to productivity growth and productive efficiency. Part VI takes a look at the incomes policy practice of another country in the region, Australia, which provides a good point of reference for the NWC.Tripartism in Singapore Chong-Yah Lim, Rosalind Chew, National Wages Council (Singapore) ... analyses of wage structures of the same narrowly-defined occupations in different countries and no widely-accepted methods of measuring and comparing occupational wage structures. ... comparisons of the pay of occupational groups or categories such as skilled manual, semi-skilled or unskilled manualanbsp;...
