Synopsis: Arguing that the consequences of the unemployment crisis could have been avoided by better government policies, particularly less restrictive monetary control, the contributors examine the effect of the zero-inflation policy adopted by the Bank of Canada and the role of unemployment insurance on the unemployment crisis of recent years. Their analysis includes discussion of various facets of unemployment in France, Germany, and Japan for comparison. Contents Introduction - Brian K.
