Praise For…


"With the rise of neo-liberalism full employment as a policy ideal has been either heavily discounted or rejected. Nevertheless humane economists never accepted this. The present volume contains challenging and highly relevant chapters by young and older scholars on the issue and what to do about it in the new environment." - G. C. Harcourt, Emeritus Reader in the History of Economic Theory, University of Cambridge, UK

"For students interested in how labor markets operate in advanced market economies, the book offers much of interest, if it is read
with caution." - CHOICE
