Econometric Methods for Labour Economics by Stephen Bazen( )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an accessible presentation of the standard statistical techniques used by labour economists. It emphasises both the input and the output of empirical analysis and covers five major topics concerning econometric methods used in labour economics: regression and related methods, choice modelling, selectivity issues, duration analysis, and policy evaluation techniques. Each of these is presented in terms of model specification, possible estimation problems, diagnostic checking, and interpretation of the output. It aims to provide guidance to practitioners on how to use the techniques and how to make sense of the results that are produced. It covers methods that are considered to be 'standard' tools in labour economics, but which are often given only a brief and highly technical treatment in econometrics textbooks. It will be a useful reference for postgraduates and advanced undergraduates, researchers embarking on empirical labour market analysis, and for more experienced economists wishing to apply these techniques for the first time
Labour market inequalities : problems and policies of low-wage employment in international perspective by Mary Gregory( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Low-skilled workers face a future of joblessness or low-wage, insecure employment as technological change and globalization impact on the advanced economies. The 'European social model' of collective bargaining, minimum wages, employment rights, and social welfare support is alternately cited as both cause and cure. The contributions to this book review the evidence and find that, although the 'European model' cannot remedy adverse global trends affecting low-skilled workers, it does achieve significant success in moderating them. Collective bargaining and wage regulation reduce the incidence of low pay. Minimum wages at prevailing levels provide significant wage protection for more vulnerable workers, without substantial job losses. The significant 'jobs dificit' of Germany relative to the USA in low-wage services is not the outcome of excessively high German wages. Conversely, reliance on wage flexibility to create jobs for the low-skilled does not emerge as economically effective, and can no longer be regarded as the simple panacea."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Job quality and employer behaviour by Wiemer Salverda( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes a fresh look at the issue of job quality, analyzing employer behaviour and discussing the agenda for policy intervention. Between 1997 and 2002, more than twelve million new jobs were created in the European Union and labour market participation increased by more than eight million. Whilst a good deal of these new jobs have been created in high-tech and/or knowledge-intensive sectors providing workers with decent pay, job security, training and career development prospects, a significant share of jobs, particularly in labour-intensive service sector industries fail to do so. This volume provides new perspectives on this highly debated and policy relevant issue
Low-wage employment in Europe by Mary Gregory( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do low wages help to reduce unemployment and increase competitiveness in world markets? Are minimum wage legislation and collective bargaining harmful to the efficient working of any economy? In answer to these questions, this book examines the impact of low-wage employment on different countries in Europe. This book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of labour economics, industrial relations and European studies as well as policy makers in the public sector and international organizations

The impact of the regulation of low wages on inequality and labour-market adjustment : a comparative analysis by Stephen Bazen( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article compares the non-market mechanisms that exist to determine wage rates for the low-paid. France, Belgium and the Netherlands have national minimum wages, Germany, Italy and Denmark have widespread collective bargaining, and in the United Kingdom (and the United States) wages are less regulated. Patterns of labour-market adjustment vary greatly, suggesting that there is no obvious correlation between low wages and labour-market performance. The article concludes that it is difficult to attribute high and persistent rates of unemployment to the existence of mechanisms to regulate "low" wages.--SCAD summary

Collaborations science-industrie et innovation dans les firmes françaises : impacts et déterminants by Safae Aïssaoui( )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works presented in this thesis use systems of innovation as an analytical framework and aims to study the effects and determinants of science-industry collaborations. Our empirical approach relies on a combination of statistical and econometric analysis of national data, and exploratory surveys within a given territory. To determine the impact of these collaborations on firms' innovation, we consider two measures of innovation: patenting and innovative performance. Taking into accounts two types of academic collaboration, including collaborations with universities and establishments of higher education and public and nonprofit research organizations, it appears that these collaborations have a significant and positive effect on innovation. On the other hand, determinants of science-industry collaborations are analyzed through two surveys: one covering firms belonging to a technopole, and the other conducted among researchers from a university. Both surveys show that firms collaborate with academic organizations mainly to find solutions to problems they face, while researchers are involved in these collaborations to stay abreast of current issues of economic agents. The results of the first survey establish a mutliscalar nature of science-industry collaborations, which minimize the importance of permanent geographical proximity in favor of a temporary geographical proximity coupled with other types of proximity. The second survey, which focuses on the determinants of researchers' propensity to collaborate, shows that these determinants are different according to the type of collaboration
