    Profitability and Unemployment

    Discussions of economic policy argue that an adequate level of profitability is a precondition for avoiding future unemployment. This book studies the rationale for this statement. The analysis is built round a simple model of the Harrod-Doman type and extends the study of fixed price equilibria by considering a dynamic process whose major components are capital accumulation and shifts in income distribution.

      Download Explaining Unemployment - D. A. G. Draper
      Description: . Europe's notoriously high level of unemployment is one of the big puzzles of empirical macroeconomics. In recent years the unemployment rate has fallen in The Netherlands, but the overall level in OECD Europe remains high. An investigation into why Dutch economic policy has been relatively effective could be useful for the unemployment debate in Europe. This book contributes to this investigation with its empirical analysis covering three important topics. The first part of the book investigates whether (macro) economic policies could be effective in reducing unemployment in the short run. This depends on the cause of unemployment: is it due to lack of demand for goods, or is it due to a shortage of capacity. Another question is whether macroeconomic policies can be directed to one side of the market. The high rate of unemployment among low-skilled workers is the topic of the second part of this book. How important is the impact of wage

      Description: The problem of mass unemployment in western Europe has persisted since the early 1980s. The New Politics of Unemployment provides a thorough comparative analysis of the present situation. A number of radical unemployment policies, from Germany, France, Italy, Britain, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland and the EU, are outlined. These are investigated with a view to identifying the conditions under which they might become standard components of national and EU strategies to bring down unemployment. This book is the first comparative study of the politics of policy innovation in the area of unemployment. It will be an important addition to the literature of European public policy.

      Description: This insightful interpretation covers German economic policy and macroeconomic performance since the election of the Schroder government, the "Alliance of Jobs" employment policy, German corporatism (including finance and industrial relations), the future of the corporate model in a global era, and innovation. The contributors argue that despite high unemployment and net capital outflows, there are real reasons to be optimistic about Germany's future. The innovation system is dynamic, industrial policy is strong, and the corporate model remains adaptable, durable, and competitive.

      Description: Drawing on the work of the classical-Marxian economists and their modern successors, Capitalists, Workers, and Fiscal Policy sets forth a new model of economic growth and distribution, and applies it to two major policy issues: public debt and social security. The book homes in specifically on the problem of fiscal policy, examining the ways that taxation and government spending affect the distribution of wealth and income as well as the rate of economic growth. Thomas Michls model shows that public debt has a regressive effect on wealth distribution. It also demonstrates that the accumulation of wealth by public authorities, for example, in the form of a pension reserve such as the U.S. social security trust fund, can have a progressive effect on wealth distribution, both directly (since it represents ownership by the citizenry) and indirectly through its general equilibrium effects on the structure of accumulation. The books findings provide an analytical foundation for a...

      Description: This book is a selection of Jacques Dr?ze's work over the past ten years on the topics of stagflation, lasting unemployment and unused capacity. At the theoretical level, the author has contributed to the formulation and analysis of general equilibrium models that allow for price rigidities and excess supply. These models have interesting macroeconomic implications and lend themselves to econometric implementation. They thus help to pull together separate branches of economics. These models have also been found helpful in the study of related topics, such as equilibrium with increasing returns, public goods, price dynamics and the limitations of wage flexibility. This collection of papers is representative of efforts by European economists to integrate micro- and macro-economics, and to use theory for empirical and policy purposes. How their thinking developed, and what contribution of lasting value it made, is sketched in an overview chapter.
