In a new paper in the Lowy Institute's Perspectives series, Mark Thirlwell asks whether the changing facts about the world economy - plummeting growth, soaring risk aversion, collapsing commodity prices, and a massive expansion in the role of government are so significant that we have to change our minds about the fundamental ways in which the world now works." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Real Communities /

by Mackay, Hugh | Review, Griffith.

Publisher: Griffith, N.S.W.Griffith Review 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Social researcher Hugh Mackay's essay on on making social investments in our communities. The former prime minister once dreamed of Australia as a nation of shareholders, enriched by their participation in the adventure of capitalism. Properly conceived, that is certainly one form of social engagement. If it looks a little less appealing to the punters today than it did back then, that might be because the full value of that kind of participation has not been widely or well enough understood. Investing in our economic future is a worthwhile thing to do, and is most rewarding in the long term if, like philanthropy, it is undertaken as a form of social engagement. That’s how the fi nest capitalists, from Adam Smith onwards, have approached it. Such investment is a symbol of the investor’s faith in the future and in the integrity and potency of the enterprises they choose to support via their shareholding. Committed investment helps build communities and hold them together. If, by contrast, the stock market is conceived of as a vast casino where buyers and sellers behave as if they are nothing more than gamblers, the system is bound to break down because the motivations are warped. Exploitation, motivated by greed, is a very different thing from investment. It is also a very different thing from social engagement. Investment is the key to the creation of stronger communities and, ultimately, to a stronger nation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The added worker effect and the discouraged worker effect for married women in Australia. /

by Gong, Xiaodong | Australia. The Treasury.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Treasury 2010Description: 37 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: )Summary: This paper investigates both the added worker effect (the labour supply responses of women to their partners job losses) and the discouraged worker effect (workers withdrawing from the labour market because of failed searches) for married women in Australia, with the emphasis on the former. We focus on the partners' involuntary job loss experiences, and analyse women's labour market activities in the periods before and after their partners' job loss. By estimating fixed effects labour supply equations using the first seven waves of data from the HILDA Survey, we find a significant added worker effect in terms of increased full time employment and working hours. The findings also suggest that it is harder for the female partners of males who have recently lost jobs to enter the labour market than for those already working to increase their working hours to compensate for lost income incurred by their partners' job loss. We also find the effect to be persistent in that, one year after the partners' job loss, more of those women would still like to work longer hours than they actually were. By investigating the relationship between self‑assessed job‑finding probability on job‑seekers? subsequent labour force participation, and by studying the relationship between labour force participation of all married women and the regional unemployment rate, the paper also finds a substantial discouraged worker effect. ; HOUSEHOLD, INCOME AND LABOUR DYNAMICS IN AUSTRALIA SURVEY (HILDA)Availability: (1)
