The existence of nonproductive wage differentials between firms of unequal size, and between different sectors, was well-known and was often positioned against neoclassical economics (Lester 1946; for theN etherlands: Van Voorden 197 5). The persistence of unemployment, however, is a relatively new phenomenon, although it may be argued that this problem is much less acute in the more market orientated economy of the United States than in the more corporative economies of Western Europe. LABOUR MARKET RESEARCH 53 7.

This informal contract implies that the worker will not ask large wage increases during periods of cyclical boom but will not suffer from wage decreases in periods of slump. In its origins, the theory promised to provide the micro-foundation for Keynesian policies, but later it proved not to be robust enough to withstand a critical review (Rosen 1985). Consequently it has not been elaborated on in articles. More often, however, a theory is not withdrawn, following critical funerial oration, rather it falls victim to silence in journals and books.

The ordered modem society, however, had a different structure, and the neoclassical model could not provide satisfactory answers to its problems. At the end of the seventies, the sociological paradigm itself came under severe criticism (especially Van Hoof 1977). This criticism was partly caused by problems in the paradigm. It proved hard to construct a general model from partial research results, since it appeared that an enormous amount of data were necessary to feed it. To a certain extent, this kind of problem was inherent in the paradigm, and it may be argued that the problem of the elaboration and refinement of different models of allocation would, in any case, have been put on the research agenda for the decade to come.
