9780262027700: Labor Economics (MIT Press)

The new edition of a widely used, comprehensive graduate-level text and professional reference covering all aspects of labor economics, with substantial new material.

This landmark graduate-level text combines depth and breadth of coverage with recent, cutting-edge work in all the major areas of modern labor economics. Its command of the literature and its coverage of the latest theoretical, methodological, and empirical developments make it also a valuable resource for practicing labor economists.

This second edition has been substantially updated and augmented. It incorporates examples drawn from many countries, and it presents empirical methods using contributions that have proved to be milestones in labor economics. The data and codes of these research publications, as well as numerous tables and figures describing the functioning of labor markets, are all available on a dedicated website (www.labor-economics.org), along with slides that can be used as course aids and a discussion forum.

This edition devotes more space to the analysis of public policy and the levers available to policy makers, with new chapters on such topics as discrimination, globalization, income redistribution, employment protection, and the minimum wage or labor market programs for the unemployed. Theories are explained on the basis of the simplest possible models, which are in turn related to empirical results. Mathematical appendixes provide a toolkit for understanding the models.

From the Inside Flap:

"This book is an impressive achievement. It offers a uniquely comprehensive, technically in-depth, and up-to-date treatment of modern labor economics suitable for graduate teaching." --David H. Autor, Department of Economics, MIT

"This book will prove a landmark. The field of labor economics has not yet had a technically oriented text, and this book fills the gap. The scholarship is most impressive, and the authors should be congratulated." --Paul Ryan, Professor of Labour Economics, King's College London

"A complete graduate labor text! The theory is current yet absolutely clear, and the links to empirical work explicit. Throughout, the authors stress the relevance of the theory and empirical results for policy questions." --Daniel S. Hamermesh, Centennial Professor of Economics, University of Texas at Austin

"An encyclopedic, integrated, and thoroughly modern presentation of labor economics, from supply and demand decisions to unemployment to the role and effects of institutions. Topics with which I am familiar have been given a clear, concise, precise, balanced, and convincing treatment. This is an outstanding textbook." --Olivier Blanchard, Department of Economics, MIT
