Work and the quality of life; resource papers for Work in America by James O'Toole( Book )

2 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sequel to Work in America, the volume of resource papers provides additional data on issues concerning the relationships of work to health, education, and welfare. The report is a planning document which focuses on how the institution of work can be changed to improve the quality of life, to contribute to a more just society, and to strengthen public and private institutions. It is a holistic and humanistic approach which goes beyond job satisfaction. Sixteen leading researchers contribute their findings and perceptions to six main sections dealing with dissatisfaction in the work force, the problems of various demographic groups of workers, the relation between work and health, job redesign and enrichment, the relationship between education and work, and Federal strategies relating to work and welfare. Evidence of increasing numbers of American workers of diverse backgrounds becoming dissatisfied with the quality of their working lives points to the need for more options in job design, more flexible working arrangements, and freer access to and information about jobs. More understanding is needed of the relationship between work and education, without contorting the function of education so that it serves only marketing ends. (Ea)

The economics of natural and unnatural disasters by William S Kern( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only recently have economists understood natural and unnatural disasters as economic phenomena to be formally analyzed. Given the magnitude of many recent disasters, their impact on local, regional, and national economies, and the coverage of their consequences in the popular press, it is puzzling that the attention of economists was for so long largely diverted from analysis of these events. This book presents a noted group of contributors who stand at the forefront of this increasingly important subdiscipline of economics the economics of disasters. The chapters they contribute cover a wide variety of events and delve into the human and economic impacts disasters impose on nations around the world. Several themes dominant in this literature are discussed. These include the ability of potential disaster victims to accurately assess the risks they face, the role of incentives in ensuring that mitigation efforts are undertaken, the adequacy of our evaluation of the impact of disasters on economies, and discussion of the effectiveness of current government policies toward disaster prevention and relief. These will in all likelihood continue to be topics of discussion in the future as well
The lingering crisis of youth unemployment by Arvil V Adams( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study is based on an analysis of recent trends in youth unemployment from published sources and on additional analysis of a national sample of young men and young women 16 to 18 years of age who were followed longitudinally over a seven year period in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The book establishes the dimensions of youth unemployment and its underlying causes and consequences, determines the priorities that should be attached to the problem, and suggests policies that would lead toward its solution. Individual articles focus upon: (1) the nature of youth unemployment; (2) postwar trends in youth employment; (3) youth unemployment in the mid 1970s; (4) the effects of a changing economy upon youth unemployment; (5) the transition from school to work; (6) the relationship between early work experience and future employability; and (7) a reassessment of youth unemployment. Among the most significant findings of the study are: (1) joblessness among out of school teenage youth carries with it a "hangover effect." That is, those who have unfavorable early labor market experiences are less likely than others to have favorable subsequent experiences; and (2) education and training have a significant positive effect upon the employment and earnings of youth by race and sex.
