Work and welfare by Robert M Solow ( Book )

Solow condemns the welfare reforms recently passed by Congress and President Clinton for confronting welfare recipients with an unworkable choice - finding work in the current labor market or losing benefits. He argues that the only practical and fair way to move recipients to work is, in contrast, through an ambitious plan to guarantee that every able-bodied citizen has access to a job. Solow contends that the demand implicit in the 1996 Welfare Reform Act for welfare recipients to find work in the existing labor market has two crucial flaws. Solow concludes that it is legitimate to want welfare recipients to work, but not to want them to live at a miserable standard or to benefit at the expense of the working poor, especially since children are often the first to suffer. Instead, he writes, we should create new demand for unskilled labor through public-service employment and incentives to the private sector - in effect, fair "workfare." Throughout, Solow places debate over welfare reform in the context of a struggle to balance competing social values, in particular self-reliance and altruism.
A critical essay on modern macroeconomic theory by Frank Hahn ( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 901 libraries worldwide
Macroeconomics began as the study of large-scale economic pathologies such as prolonged depression, mass unemployment, and persistent inflation. In the early 1980s, rational expectations and new classical economics dominated macroeconomic theory, with the result that such pathologies can hardly be discussed within the vocabulary of the theory. This essay evolved from the authors' profound disagreement with that trend. It demonstrates not only how the new classical view got macroeconomics wrong, but also how to go about doing macroeconomics the right way. Hahn and Solow argue that what was originally offered as a normative model based on perfect foresight and universal perfect competition - useful for predicting what an ideal, omniscient planner should do - has been almost casually transformed into a model for interpreting real macroeconomic behavior, leading to Panglossian economics that does not reflect actual experience.

Learning from "learning by doing" : lessons for economic growth by Robert M Solow ( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 318 libraries worldwide
This book by a Nobel laureate in economics begins with a brief exposition of Kenneth J. Arrow's classic paper "The Economic Implications of Learning by Doing" (1962). It shows how Arrow's idea fits into the modern theory of economic growth, and uses it as a springboard for a critical consideration of spectacular recent developments that have made growth theory a dynamic topic today. The author then develops a new theory that combines learning by doing (identifying it with the concept of "continuous improvement") with a separate process of discrete "innovations." Learning by doing leads to a fairly smooth reduction in labor required per unit of output, tied to the rate of gross investment in new capital equipment. Innovations arrive at random; when one of them happens, the labor requirement takes a jump downward.

Structural reform and economic policy ( Book )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
The relation between structural reform and macroeconomic policy underlies the widespread perception that the large European economies have under-performed in the past decade in comparison both with their own standards and with the contemporaneous performance of the United States. Nobel Laureate Robert Solow introduces the book by observing that within European financial and governmental institutions and among European economists, themost commont response is a call for structural reforms, primarily deregulation of the labour market, to make it more like a spot market for a perishable commodity, with the implicit presumption that essentially nothing else is needed. This book takes a more inclusive view and provides analyses that might be useful in a more coordinated and simultaneous approach on all three fronts--labour and product markets and the demand side.

The problems connected with long-term economic development remain very prominent in a world where the rhythm of growth is so different from country to country, and where disparities in the standards of living of nations emerge strikingly as the world becomes more interdependent. The papers (partly empirical and partly theoretical) here collected address themselves to these problems.
