  1. Employment Relations and National Culture

    Employment Relations and National Culture

    Ferrie Pot
    Ferrie Pot analyses the impact of national culture on the way the employment relationship is organized using case studies from the United States and the Netherlands. Evidence from these countries suggests that nations respond to globalization in line with their cultural values. As such, this book challenges the widespread belief that global trends will lead to the homogenization of the employment relationship. Learn More

    The Overeducated Worker?

    Edited by Lex Borghans, Andries de Grip
    This argument challenges the policy of many developed countries to attach ever greater importance to knowledge as a means to increase international competitiveness. The authors in this book provide insights into the role of education in society by investigating the extent to which these arguments of overeducation and upgrading are valid. They bring together different approaches to obtain a complete picture of the debate in economics about under-utilization of skills and bumping down. Learn More

  6. Global Money, Capital Restructuring and the Changing Patterns of Labour

    Global Money, Capital Restructuring and the Changing Patterns of Labour

    Edited by Riccardo Bellofiore
    The last two decades have seen a reshaping of the international economy together with a radical weakening in the conditions of the working class. New productive techniques and new methods in the organisation of labour have been implemented on a world-wide scale partly as a consequence of the financialization of capital. The geographical diffusion of market relations has continued and with it the dominance of capital in all realms of social reproduction. In charting this change, the book offers an alternative view of contemporary capitalism. Learn More

  13. Low Pay and Earnings Mobility in Europe

    Low Pay and Earnings Mobility in Europe

    Edited by Rita Asplund, Peter Sloane, Ioannis Theodossiou
    The widening earnings dispersion which is developing in European labour markets has had the inevitable consequence of worsening the position of the poorer members of society. This book identifies those individual characteristics which affect upward mobility either by increasing or decreasing the probability of individual workers improving their chances of earning higher wages. The authors, including some of the leading labour economists in Europe, offer a comprehensive European perspective covering a total of thirteen countries. They shed new light on the way in which labour market incentives and institutions affect both the incidence and duration of low-paid employment. Learn More

  18. Structural Adjustment without Mass Unemployment?

    Structural Adjustment without Mass Unemployment?

    Edited by Simon Clarke
    Mass unemployment has usually been seen as a necessary accompaniment to major structural adjustment, yet in Russia, amid economic collapse, enormous structural changes have taken place with remarkably low levels of unemployment. Some have seen low unemployment as a sign that Russia has undergone no real changes, but others see it as a sign of a remarkably flexible labour market, with very high rates of labour turnover and extremes of wage differentiation allowing low-wage (and even no-wage) employment to persist in the old industries alongside the growth of a new private sector. On this interpretation, Russia shows to the world, in extreme form, both the benefits and the costs of labour market flexibility. Learn More
