About this title


After more than twenty years of mass unemployment in Britain and throughout much of Europe can the aspiration of "jobs for all" once again become a reality? Working for Full Employment considers the feasibility of full employment in a modern market economy.
The book is written by a group of experts who were pivotal in pushing full employment up the political agenda in the mid 1990's. They identify the hard choices which policy makers must face and discuss why full employment has been so elusive for the past twenty years. The authors examine:
* The effects of new technology and increased trade
* The increased participation of women in the labour market
* The impact of labour market regulation on employment
* Worksharing
* How welfare reform can help the long term unemployed into jobs
* The role of industrial policy
* Reform of pay bargaining
Well informed and accessible, this book is a valuable contribution to the developing debate on labour market policy.

From the Back Cover:

Working For Full Employment draws upon contributions from experienced labour market experts and public policy analysts. Together they provide a readable and stimulating perspective on new ways to combat mass joblessness. Topics covered include the effects of new technology and increased trade, the increased participation of women in the labour market, the impact of labour market regulation on employment, worksharing, how welfare reforms can help the long-term unemployed into jobs, the role of industrial policy, and reform of pay bargaining. The book's central arguments are also relevant to the concepts of 'social cohesion' and the 'stakeholder economy' which are set to become dominant political themes in the next few years. This accessible book will be a valuable guide to economists, policy-makers and everyone with an interest in employment changes.
