Overview

Richard Layard is one of Britain's foremost applied economists, and his work has had a profound impact on the policy of debate in Britain and abroad. This book contains his most influential articles on the subject of unemployment. It is published along with a companion volume, Equality, which deals with these topics and with economic transition. Unemployment explains what causes unemployment and proposes remedies to reside it. There is a strong focus on how unemployed people are treated and how this affects unemployment--including Layard's well-known recommendation of a job-guarantee for long-term unemployed people. Other topics covered are the effect of unions on wage bargaining, the effect of low skill, and the possible role of rigid employment laws.
