This article investigates the consequences on economic performance of the interplay among several political and economic institutions. Our aim is to link the partisan approach with the macroeconomic theory of trade unions. First, by using a simple setup, we are interesting in the comparative effects of left- and right-wing government performance. Second, we aim to analyze the relationship between these effects and different structures of the labor market.
