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

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,314 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 by David E Card( )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,047 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

World happiness report 2015( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Happiness Report reviews levels of happiness across developed and developing nations, and presents ranking tables on national and regional happiness. The first report in 2012 featured a broad examination of the data; this second report in 2013 considers more specific issues in measurement, explanation, and policy. The data and analysis in the World Happiness Report 2013 have helped to satisfy, and perhaps to fuel, growing public interest in applying the science of happiness to public affairs. Readership thus far is about 1.5 million, 50% more than for the first World Happiness Report. That interest in turn encouraged a number of local and national experiments in measuring and improving happiness, as well as the production of the World Happiness Report 2015
World happiness report 2016 : volume II : special Rome edition( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first World Happiness Report was published in April 2012, in support of the High Level Meeting at the United Nations on happiness and well-being, chaired by the Prime Minister of Bhutan. Since then we have come a long way. Increasingly, happiness is considered to be the proper measure of social progress and the goal of public policy. This is the fourth World Happiness Report, and it is different in several respects from its predecessors. These differences relate to timing, content and geography

Implications of skill-biased technological change : international evidence by Eli Berman( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demand for less skilled workers decreased dramatically in the US and in other developed countries over the past two decades. We argue that pervasive skill-biased technological change rather than increased trade with the developing world is the principal culprit. The pervasiveness of this technological change is important for two reasons. First, it is an immediate and testable implication of technological change. Second, under standard assumptions, the more pervasive the skill-biased technological change the greater the increase in the embodied supply of less skilled workers and the greater the depressing effect on their relative wages through world goods prices. In contrast, in the Heckscher-Ohlin model with small open economies, the skill-bias of local technological changes does not affect wages. Thus, pervasiveness deals with a major criticism of skill-biased technological change as a cause. Testing the implications of pervasive, skill-biased technological change we find strong supporting evidence. First, across the OECD, most industries have increased the proportion of skilled workers employed despite rising or stable relative wages. Second, increases in demand for skills were concentrated in the same manufacturing industries in different developed countries

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 20 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
