Globaphobia : confronting fears about open trade by Gary T Burtless( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this book speak directly to these concerns. They demonstrate with straightforward prose and simple illustrations why the globaphobes are wrong. Globalization has not reduced the availability of jobs. Nor has it reduced the average wage. It has played only a small part in the deteriorating situation of America's least skilled workers. A challenge for Americans is to understand globalization and the benefits it brings. Equally important is the challenge of improving public policies aimed at reducing the very real pain of those Americans hurt by closer world economic integration. Globaphobia outlines a humane and practical program for advancing this goal

Five years after : the long-term effects of welfare-to-work programs by Daniel Friedlander( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With welfare reforms currently being tested in almost every state, and plans for a comprehensive federal overhaul on the horizon, it has become increasingly important to understand how policy changes are likely to affect the lives of welfare recipients. One of the most influential contributions to the welfare reform debate came in the 1980s with a series of social experiments run by the Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation to evaluate a select group of state welfare-to-work programs. Five Years After, a follow-up study conducted by MDRC, provides the first analysis of the long-term consequences of large-scale employment programs for welfare recipients, using newly collected data from evaluations performed in Baltimore, San Diego, Virginia, and Arkansas

Does money matter? : the effect of school resources on student achievement and adult success by Gary T Burtless( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses a simple question: Would larger school budgets actually boost student performance? Past research on this question suggests a striking paradox. Analysts typically find that extra spending plays only a negligible role in improving student achievement as measured on standardized tests. At the same time, other researchers find a clear and consistent pattern linking greater school spending with greater job market success among students who have benefited from higher spending." "This book brings together leading scholars with a diversity of views on this important issue. Half the essays examine the relationship between educational resources and student achievement in school; the others evaluate evidence on the link between school resources and students' success after they enter the job market."--Jacket
Retirement and economic behavior( Book )

Closing the deficit : how much can later retirement help? by Henry J Aaron( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past two decades Americans over age 60 have increasingly delayed their withdrawal from the workforce, a reversal of a century-old trend toward early retirement. For instance, from 1991 to 2010 the employment rate increased by more than half among 68-year-old men and by about two-thirds among women of the same age. Using data from the Current Population Survey, Working Our Way out of the Deficit explores the historical trajectory of retirement and the labor force participation rate of older men and women. Who chooses to delay retirement? Have older workers delayed their departure from career jobs? How will working longer affect the outlook for the federal budget? Brookings economists Henry Aaron and Gary Burtless join with renowned colleagues to examine the impact of extended employment against the backdrop of the federal deficit problem
Use of experimental methods in workforce evaluations by Gary T Burtless( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the pros and cons of using randomized trials to improve the effectiveness of workforce policies. A randomized trial offers researchers a convincing benchmark for measuring program effectiveness. An experiment allows us to answer a question that is usually unanswerable in nonexperimental studies: How would people enrolled in the tested program have fared if that had not been offered services under the program?
