European migration : what do we know? by Centre for Economic Policy Research (Great Britain)( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together in-depth analyses of migration issues in major European countries, and compares evidence with more countries that have traditionally seen the most immigration. First, it studies migration streams since World War II, and reviews major migration policy regimes. Second, it summarizes the empirical evidence measuring wages, unemployment, and occupational choices. Third, it investigates how migrants affect the labour markets of their host countries, and evaluates econometric studies into the wage and employment consequences of immigration." "This important work is an invaluable resource for academic labour economists, geographers, and sociologists, as well as policy makers concerned with immigration."--Jacket

Gender convergence in the labor market( )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most countries, women's labor force participation and hours of work has risen while men's have fallen. Concomitantly, men's and women's wages and occupational structures have been converging. This volume contains new and innovative research on issues related to gender convergence in the labor market. Topics include patterns in lifetime work, earnings and human capital investment, the gender wage gap, gender complementarities, career progression, the gender composition of top management and the role of parental leave policies. Among the questions answered are: Do the levels of and returns to human capital change over the last 50 years in the US? Can the shorter fecundity horizon for females (a biological constraint) explain the division of labor in the home and the resulting wage gap? Does skill-biased technological change favor women's wages more than men's? Do care sector jobs incur a wage penalty? What impact does this have on firm and employee outcomes? Does the glass-ceiling faced by women in top management relate to fertility and parental leave policies and having children? And finally, are men and women complements or substitutes in the labor market?--

Gender in the labor market( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although converging somewhat, men are still economically more successful than women. These stark economic differences prevail in the United States and in virtually all countries throughout the world. This volume contains a number of important new articles analyzing reasons for continuing gender discrepancies in wellbeing. To get at these incongruities, the volume analyzes a number of key questions including: Do men seek greater financial risk than women? Do men really bargain better, and under what circumstances? Why are women rapidly closing the college enrollment gap, but not the wage gap? How do educational choices affect men's and women's starting salaries? What are the chances of women attaining the same occupational status as men? And, how does intergenerational socioeconomic mobility differ between sons and daughters? The answers will not only further our understanding of resource distribution, but will also inform the policy debate on where within society one finds discriminatory practices and where one does not
Immigration policy and the labor market : the German experience and lessons for Europe by Klaus F Zimmermann( )

23 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German and European immigration policies have only recently begun to cope with the inevitable: growing labor demand in the face of high unemployment and a shrinking labor force due to demographic change. Despite the implementation of Germany's first immigration act and several European initiatives towards legal harmonization at the EU level, an actively controlling immigration policy which would be needed to master the challenges ahead, is not yet in sight. Against this background, the book draws conclusions from the German history of immigration policy. It analyzes the country's future demand for immigration and develops an economic model for the effective selection and integration of labor migrants that could provide the foundation for a joint European immigration strategy."--Jacket
EU labor markets after post-enlargement migration by Martin Kahanec( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are immigrants from the new EU member states a threat to the Western welfare state? Do they take jobs away from the natives? And will the source countries suffer from severe brain drain or demographic instability? This book integrates what is known about post-enlargement migration and its effects on EU labor markets
Using internet activity data to analyze human resources issues by Adrian Ziderman( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue of the International Journal of Manpower examines the potentials and challenges of Internet data or ""Big Data"" for research in the social sciences with a special focus on human resources issues. Internet data are increasingly representing a large part of everyday life. The information is timely, perhaps even daily following the factual process. It typically involves large numbers of observations and allows for flexible conceptual forms and experimental settings. The introduction paper by Nikolaos Askitas and Klaus F. Zimmermann on ""The Internet as a Data Source for Advanc
Migration : the controversies and the evidence by Riccardo Faini( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It examines the substitutability between trade and migration, the impact of regional integration on the location of economic activity, the role of public-good provisions, and the political economy of migration."--Jacket
Gender, inequality, and wages by Francine D Blau( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In all Western societies women earn lower wages on average than men. The gender wage gap has existed for many years, although there have been some important changes over time. This volume of collected papers contains extensive research on progress made by women in the labor market, and the characteristics and causes of remaining gender inequalities. It also covers other dimensions of inequality and their interplay with gender, such as family formation, wellbeing, race, and immigrant status. The author was awarded the 2010 IZA Prize in Labor Economics for this research. Part I comprises an Introduction by the Editors. Part II probes and quantifies the explanations for the gender wage gap, including differential choices made in the labor market by men and women as well as labor market discrimination and employment segregation. It also delineates how the gender wage gap has decreased over time in the United States and suggests explanations for this narrowing of the gap and the more recent slowdown in wage convergence. Part III considers international differences in the gender wage gap and wage inequality and the relationship between the two. Part IV considers a variety of indicators of gender inequality and how they have changed over time in the United States, painting a picture of significant gains in women's relative status across a number of dimensions. It also considers the trends in female labor supply and what they indicate about changing gender roles in the United States and considers a successful intervention designed to increase the relative success of academic women. Part V focuses on inequality by race and immigrant status. It considers not only race difference in wages and the differential progress made by African-American women and men in reducing the race wage gap, but also race differences in wealth which are considerably larger than differences in wages. It also examines immigrant-native differences in the use of transfer payments, and the impact of gender roles in immigrant source countries on immigrant women's labor market assimilation in the U.S. labor market."--Publisher
Labour markets in an ageing Europe( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, based on a CEPR conference held in Munich on 23-25 April 1992, demographers and labour economists assess recent demographic and labour market developments in Western and Eastern Europe. They compare them with developments in the USA and Japan and assess the effects of ageing on European productivity, earnings, and human capital formation. They consider the relationships between ageing, unemployment, labour mobility and migration and investigate the policy implications of ageing for productivity, wages, mobility, unemployment, and educational activity. They consider possible policies to improve the quantity or quality of the labour force, including incentives to female labour participation, selective immigration policies, 'pronatalist' family policies, and measures to improve human capital formation through schooling and further education
Labor migration, EU enlargement, and the Great Recession by Martin Kahanec( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and German and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume extends and deepens our knowledge about cross-border mobility and its role in an enlarged EU. More specifically, its main purpose is to enlighten the growing and yet rather uninformed debate about the role of post-enlargement migration for economic adjustment in the crisis-stricken labor markets of the Eurozone and the EU as a whole. The book addresses the political economy aspects of post-enlargement migration, including its broader political contexts, redistributive impacts, but also nationalization of the enlargement agenda. It also covers the experience of receiving and sending countries with post-enlargement migration and its role during the current crisis. Renowned experts in the field study, whether and how post-enlargement mobility has enabled the EU to absorb asymmetric economic shocks, how it has affected the European welfare systems, and whether it has contributed to the sustainability of the Eurozone. The authors also evaluate brain circulation as a sought-after vehicle of improved allocative efficiency of EU labor markets and propose a policy agenda for mobility in an enlarged EU
Economic theory of optimal population by Klaus F Zimmermann( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are used to calling most developing countries overpopulated and consi dering some industrialized countries (like West Germany) "threatened by underpopulation". Analogous population policies with different objecti ves are discussed. However, none of the measures suggested can be justi fied or evaluated without an implicit concept of optimum population, a notion which has attracted attention ever since economics was made a science. The relevance of the subject and the recent rise in interest by popula tion economists has motivated the organization of a conference on "Opti mal Population" in Bielefeld, where most of this book originates.

Family, household, and work by Klaus F Zimmermann( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and German and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last decades the appearance of a family has changed substantially. Not long ago a typical family consisted of an employed man and a home-managing woman living together for their whole life times, and having one or more children, which primarily were raised by the wife. Today differing living models are much more common than before. House husbands, late motherhood, and a delayed work entry of the children are some of the related phenomena, which at the same time are reasons for and consequences of the changed view on the favorite family. Not surprisingly, this change has provoked much scientific interest. In this book we present a collection of recent economic research work on the resources management and development of families and households respectively. Assorting three general topics, we focus on the time allocation within the household, the family structure and development, and the transition to work of young adults
Demographic change and economic development by Alois Wenig( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, population economics has become increasingly popular in both economic and policy analysis. For the inquiry into the long term development of an economy, the interaction between demographic change and economic activity cannot be neglected without omitting major aspects of the problems. This volume helps to further developments in theoretical and applied demographical economics covering the issues of demographic change and economic development. The interaction between demographic change and economic development in the long run is one central issue. One conjecture is that it is mainly the relative population pressure which controls the pace of economic development. However, econometric evidence presented in the book does not support this hypothesis. Other papers deal with the relationships between fertility and business cycle fluctuations, the timing of births, the efficiency in intergenerational transfers, the role of open economies for the population issue, historical perspectives of demographic change in Hungary and an outline of recent developments of applied modelling using input-output models, programming models or econometric techniques
Migration and economic development by Klaus F Zimmermann( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global migration potential in the world towards the higher developed areas has been estimated to be about 80 to 100 million people. Most of them would like to move permanently. It is expected that the numbers will further grow in the medium-term future. Normally, the issue of migrationis linked to the issue of economic development. Economists, demographers andsociologists, among other social scientists have made only limitated effortsto understand the causes and consequences of migration and to provide the basis for an appropriate policy-making. The book collects eight contributions to the relevant issues involved: Migration in a rational framework of decision making; the performance of migrants; how they affect the sending countries; rural-urban migration in developing countries. The options for migration policy are also considered. The book discusses newmethods to model these problems, provides new empirical findings and gives policy recommendations. It should be of value to economists, demographers and sociologists
Employment policy in transition : the lessons of German integration for the labor market by Regina Therese Riphahn( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book summarises the major lessons from the East German labor market in transition and puts them into context with the first experiences in the other transition countries. After an introduction to the subject and an overview of labor market developments in East Germany, part 1 of this volume turns to specific issues of adjustment: wage trends, business start-ups, and early retirement. Part 2 reviews the policy options available in the transformation process and their labor market implications: wage subsidies, profit sharing, invested pay, further education, and various forms of active labor market policy. The final chapter draws parallels with the experience of other transition economies
Zuwanderung und Arbeitsmarkt : Deutschland und Dänemark im Vergleich : mit 52 Tabellen by Klaus F Zimmermann( )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in German and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Zuwanderungspolitik der letzten Jahrzehnte ist eine Politik des gebremsten Erfolges. Immer weniger Migranten stehen dem Arbeitsmarkt aktiv zur Verfügung. Falsche Arbeitsmarktanreize spielen dabei eine wichtige Rolle. Eine kritische Bilanz von Erfolgen und Misserfolgen der Arbeitsmarktintegration von Zuwanderern ist notwendig, um Kurskorrekturen vornehmen zu können. Praktisches Handeln erfordert Kenntnisse über Wirkungsbedingungen politischer Maßnahmen. Diese Kenntnisse vermittelt das vorliegende Buch in Form eines Vergleichs der ökonomischen Integration von Migranten in Dänemark und Deutschland. Auf Basis eigener Datenerhebungen werden das Bildungs- und Ausbildungsverhalten, wichtige Beschäftigungstrends und die Selbständigkeit von Zuwanderern sowie die Auswirkungen der sozialen Sicherungssysteme auf die Arbeitsmarktpartizipation untersucht. Darüber hinaus unterzieht der Band das neue deutsche Zuwanderungsgesetz einer kritischen Würdigung
