How to Beat Unemployment
Many people think nothing can be done reduce unemployment; this book, by a leading expert, disagrees. The author shows how unemployment can be cut and explains why it has risen. To cut unemployment we must increase spending without increasing inflation. This measn targeting the extra demand at the unemployed, rather than those in work; training the unskilled, while targeting jobs tpowards those who remain unskilled; and, to ensure that inflation stays low, having a tax-based incomes policy. These proposals are based on the author's analysis of why unemploymwent has risen. Here he provides a definitive statement of the modern theory of unemployment, and provides a mass of evidence about what actually causes unemployment in Britain. Readership: social scientists especially economists; politicians; civil servants; businessmen; students taking courses in basic economics, labour economics, social administration and social policy.
