Este artigo observa o diferencial nas remunerações de base e nos ganhos de mulheres e homens em Portugal, enquadrando a análise nas transformações económicas e laborais mais recentes. É sublinhada, num primeiro momento, a persistência de um diferencial muito elevado, não obstante um declínio ligeiro nos anos mais recentes. Esta constatação está em linha com outras análises sobre as dinâmicas laborais que apontam para uma aproximação entre mulheres e homens em vários indicadores relativos ao mercado de trabalho, em resultado de uma acentuada degradação das condições laborais e de vida dos homens, sobretudo nos anos que se seguiram à fase...

This article seeks to expand the knowledge available on the motivations, constraints, opportunities and experiences of women occupying international managerial positions, either as expatriates or in autonomous professional projects. A qualitative methodology was adopted. A total of 20 in-depth interviews were conducted with women in international careers.

Inspired by an earlier article (Mathur-Helm, 2002), women’s international managerial experiences are represented here as standing at a crossroads, at the point of intersection of different, challenges and opportunities. The decision to move abroad and the mobility...

In this paper we test the macroeconomic impact of investment in public-private
partnerships, public and private investment in Portugal through a VAR model with four
variables: public and private investment, PPP investment and GDP, to the period 1998-
2013. An assessment of crowding-in / crowding-out effects of investment in PPPs is
carried out. We also proceed to the calculation of macroeconomic rates of return on
investment in PPP, public investment and private investment. The results show that
public and private investment has a positive effect in GDP while investment in PPP
reduces the Portuguese GDP. In what concerns to crowding-in/crowding-out effects an
increase in PPP investment crowds-out both...

We assess the determinants of long-term sovereign yield spreads using a panel of 10 Euro
area countries over the period 1999.01–2016.07 notably regarding the ECB (standard and
non-standard) quantitative easing measures. Our findings indicate that the international risk,
the bid-ask spread and real effective exchange rate increased the 10-year sovereign bond
yield spreads. Moreover, quantitative easing, notably Longer-term Refinancing Operations
(LTROs), Targeted LTROs and the Securities Market Program decreased the yield spreads.
