The positive employment effects disappear if the whole diffusion process is considered. In the initial phase of the diffusion process the rate of employment is (at least on average) below its equilibrium level. These negative initial effects are just compensated by positive employment effects in the last phase of the diffusion process. This can be seen from figure 5, where the cumulated employment effects of the innovation diffusion G(V(Z) -V*)dZ) are represented by the solid line.

The capital accumulation in the new sector is delayed and the scrapping in the old sector is accelerated. This is the deeper reason, why the positive employment effects of innovations disappear during the diffusion process in the case of a productivity oriented wage policy. 4. Concluding remarks The analysis outlined above shows that profit rate differentials may be a necessary condition for a high level of employment, but they are not sufficient. Here the wage policy pursued by the trade unions and the employers' associations is of crucial importance.
