Abstract: We compare transaction employment in the USA and Bulgaria from 1997 to 2006. Transaction employment reflects the labour inputs which are necessary to run institutions in a national economy. We measure these inputs as a share of GDP. Our results show that a relatively constant share of about 30% of GDP relates to transaction employment in the USA. In the transitional economy of Bulgaria this share increases from 8% to 12 %. This paper deals with a particular aspect of the transaction sector concept and adds to the discussion on the methodology for cross-country comparisons.
