The Unemployment Crisis in Australia: Which Way Out?
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungSince the 1970s the average level of unemployment in Australia has risen each decade. This has imposed huge economic, social and human costs, making unemployment one of the most pressing problems confronting Australia. This book argues that the current approaches of wage cuts and labor market flexibility will not solve the unemployment problem. Rather, the main solution is not wage cuts but job growth. This important book points to a way beyond the current policy malaise and offers detailed solutions to unemployment.
