The Job Guarantee: Toward True Full Employment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This timely collection tackles the issue of the government job guarantee (JG) approach to full employment, taking previous research one step further by providing an in-depth look at practical application for both developed and developing economies. While the 'first generation' of literature on the JG focuses on theory and methodology, this book aims to formalize job guarantee proposals and focus on the practical application of such proposals. Questions raised include: Can the effectiveness of the job guarantee approach be measured, if so how, and what are the conclusions? How do these conclusions reinforce the theory? What are the practical applications? What is the empirical evidence to reinforce the theoretical application?

The Job Guarantee: Toward True Full Employment will be the first of its kind to focus on the 'second generation' of job guarantee proposals to full employment, and primarily on theoretical applications, simulations, and case studies to describe the nature, structure, and applicability for developed and developing economies.

To date, the contributions on the topic of the government job guarantee (JG) have laid the theoretical groundwork for the job guarantee approach toward full employment. The distinctive element that sets this book apart is its focus on formalization and practical application.
