The Economic Effects of Profit Sharing in Great Britain 

There are a number of ways to have workers' remuneration linked more readily with firms' commercial performance. One is to link wages to profits by using cash-based profit sharing (where workers are made cash payments which vary with employer's profitability). A second is to have workers paid partly in their firms' own shares. A third, and more extreme alternative, is producer co-operatives where workers participate in profits, ownership and decision-making. In this article we examine both the theoretical and empirical evidence in support of such schemes.
