ABSTRACT

The objective of the current document is to analyze the macroeconomic determinants of real wages in Mexico, an economy with a high degree of integration with the US, under the Hypotheses of Rational Expectations, through the Generalized Method of Moments (GMM). We estimated an ad hoc wage-setting equation, to the Mexican economy. The outcomes validate the existence of a Phillips curve and show that the unemployment is the most important variable in determining the real salary rates. However, productivity keeps a close relation with wages, while the inflation expectations play a secondary role in determining them.
