The consequences of the crisis on labour markets have been visible since 2008, especially in the United States where the crisis originated. At the global level, after four years of consecutive declines, the number of unemployed increased in 2008 by 14 million. As the crisis continues to spread and job losses mount, worldwide unemployment could increase by at least 38 million by the end of this year214ocn705370113com0.33Employment working paper82ocn050209502book20020.59Lübker, MalteAssessing the impact of past distributional shifts on global poverty levels81ocn051803571book20020.63Bhorat, HaroonThe South African labour market in a globalizing world : economic and legislative considerations72ocn046943972book20010.47Saget, CatherineIs minimum wage an effective tool to promote decent work and reduce poverty? : the experience of selected developing countries71ocn043883247book20000.47Hoeven, Rolph van derPoverty and structural adjustment : some remarks on tradeoffs between equity and growth71ocn050013169book20020.47Women and men in the informal economy : statistical picture72ocn049394026book20010.73Galli, RossanaIs inflation bad for income inequality : the importance of the initial rate of inflation62ocn050440429book20020.96Xaba, JantjieInformal sector in Sub-Saharan Africa61ocn043577784book20000.81Auer, PeterAgeing of the labour countries : economic and social consequences52ocn045758464book20000.47Ark, Bart vanProductivity and unit labour cost comparisons : a data base42ocn423153686book20080.92Sharkh, Miriam AbuAre there optimal global configurations of labour market flexibility and security? : Tackling the "flexicurity" oxymoronAnalyses which types of labour market flexibility and security combinations - "flexicurity" - are advantageous and who benefits42ocn045138967book20000.47Renshaw, GeoffreyAchieving full employment in the transition economies42ocn051912399book20030.47Karshenas, MassoudGlobal poverty : national accounts-based versus survey-based estimates42ocn045138968book20000.47Bangasser, Paul EThe ILO and the informal sector : an institutional history41ocn052548318book20030.47Gender inequalities, economic growth and economic reform : a preliminary longitudinal evaluation42ocn051863655book20010.47Kwiatkowski, EugeniuszLabour market flexibility and employment security : Poland42ocn043883237book20000.47Ghose, Ajit KumarTrade liberalization and manufacturing employment42ocn048578619book20010.47Techtvernina, TLabour market flexibility and employment security : Russian Federation42ocn044862645book20000.47Schaible, WesMethods for producing world and regional estimates for selected key indicators of the labour marketFri Mar 21 15:31:30 EDT 2014batch12846
