Taken from rear cover ..... 'About the book: What factors affect the ways individuals participate in labor markets?
"New Developments and Research on Labor Markets" (volume 4B) proposes answers to this and other questions on important topics of public policy. Leading labor economists demonstrate how better data and advanced experiments help them apply economic theory, yielding sharper analyses and conclusions. The combinations of these improved empirical findings with new models enable the authors of these chapters to reveal how labor economists are developing new and innovative ways to measure key parameters and test important hypotheses.
- Concentrates on empirical research in specific labor markets, including those defined by age, gender, and race
- Reveals how questions and answers about these markets have changed and how models measure them
- Documents how conceptual models and empirical work explain important practical issues.'

Review ..... "Volume 4 very nicely illustrates several important trends in labor economics:increased concern about proper research design, more contact with those in other social sciences, greater reliance on data collected by those conducting the research, and (in some areas) more productive interplay between theory and data. The authors have themselves been major contributors to these developments; they combine a participants enthusiasm with a detached perspective on the challenges and gaps that remain." - Charles brown, University of Michigan.

SPECIAL NOTE - Oxfam Winchester are also separately listing Volume 4A on-line ....... if seeking to purchase both volumes as a set, please make email enquiry / contact the shop.
