The Great Recession was one of the most traumatic global events of the first decade of the twenty-first century. This book showcases research undertaken by leading experts on the macroeconomic and labour market dimensions of the financial crisis of 2007-2009. It provides a global overview, interpreting the causes, consequences and policy responses to the Great Recession from the perspective of both developing and developed countries.
This volume offers an in-depth analysis of the state of employment in the world today, providing a detailed and comprehensive picture of the serious challenges faced by today's policy-makers...
This revised and updated edition provides an authoritative account of how active labour market policies (ALMPs) can help make globalization work better in the interest of workers around the world.
Though labour market regulations have been blamed for the poor economic performance of many developing countries, the evidence on which this argument rests is weak. Rather than constraining economic development, labour market institutions, including the laws that regulate the labour market, are important for both economic growth as well as the well-being of the workforce. Through a survey of different labour market institutions in developing countries, this volume reaffirms the importance of labour market institutions in this era of globalization.
This book argues, with case studies contributed by outstanding national experts, that the flexicurity approach is the most relevant for Central and Eastern European countries and suggests appropriate reforms of economic policy, institutional framework of the labour market, labour market policy and education and social policies in this region.
Examines the interaction between labour market flexibility, employment security and labour market policies in the Central and Eastern European transition countries and provides comparison with labour market behaviour in OECD countries.
Comprises six papers which provide a comparative analysis of trends in employment security and stability in 16 OECD countries and individual country reports for Denmark, France, Japan and the USA. Covers the period 1990-2000.
