Emerging from Communism : lessons from Russia, China, and Eastern Europe( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If free markets and private ownership are meant to increase economic opportunity and welfare, why has their introduction been accompanied by such pain in Eastern Europe and Russia? The contributors to this book believe that future reform strategies in any country depend on understanding what has occurred in these emerging economies so far. Issues addressed include inflation, privatization, enterprise restructuring, banking reform and labor market policy, and the role of decentralization in China's growth
Seeking a premier economy : the economic effects of British economic reforms, 1980-2000( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1980s and 1990s, successive United Kingdom governments enacted a series of reforms to establish a more market-oriented economy, closer to the American model and further away from its Western European competitors." "Seeking a Premier Economy focuses on the labor and product market reforms that have directly impacted productivity, employment, and income inequality. The comparative microeconomic approach of this book yields the most credible evaluation possible, focusing on closely associated outcomes of particular reforms for individuals, firms, and sectors."--BOOK JACKET

The effects of minimum wages on employment : theory and evidence from the UK by Richard Dickens( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent work on the economic effects of minimum wages has stressed that the standard economic model, where increases in minimum wages depress employment, is not supported by the empirical findings in some labour markets. In this paper we present a theoretical framework which is general enough to allow minimum wages to have the conventional negative impact on employment, but which also allows for the possibility of a neutral or a positive effect. The model structure is based on labour market frictions which give employers some degree of monopsony power. The formulated model has a number of empirical implications which we go on to test using data on industry-based minimum wages set by the UK Wages Councils between 1975 and 1990. Some strong results emerge: minimum wages significantly compress the distribution of earnings and, contrary to conventional economic wisdom but in line with several recent studies, do not have a negative impact on employment. If anything, the relationship between minimum wages and employment is estimated to be positive
