The Unemployment Debatte: Current Issues
This bundle contains selected and refereed contributions to the Autumn-conference of the German Association of Political Economy held at Maastricht in 1997. The mainly theoretically oriented papers deal with current issues in the unemployment debate both from a macro- and a micro-economic perspective:
Macro-economic policies and income inequality, unemployment, inflation and growth
European welfare states and unemployment
Labour markets institutions and labour markets performance
Labour market deregulation and unemployment
The bundle is especially interesting for economists and social scientists working in the field of macro-economics and labour economics and/or being interested in the theoretical underpinning of topical macro-economic and labour market policy.
