by Borland, Jeff | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Tseng, Yi-Ping.

Does part time employment help or hinder lone mothers' movements into full time employment? /

by Fok, Yin King | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Jeon, Sung-Hee | Wilkins, Roger.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute Working Paper ; no. 25/09.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: A significant demographic trend in recent decades in Australia has been the growth in lone parent families as a proportion of all families, associated with which has been growth in welfare dependency. This has led to considerable policy focus on increasing lone parent participation in employment. A key issue that has arisen for the Government in pursuing this policy goal is whether, in the context of a welfare system that accommodates the combining of part-time employment with welfare receipt, part-time employment helps or hinders a progression to full-time employment, and whether and how this depends on characteristics such as the number and ages of dependent children. In this study, we investigate this issue using Australian panel data on female lone parents over the period 2001 to 2007. We estimate dynamic random effects multinomial logit models of three labour force states ? not employed, employed part-time, and employed full-time ? allowing investigation of whether part-time work represents a stepping stone to full-time employment. Evidence in support of the stepping stone hypothesis is found. Part-time employment increases the probability of full-time employment in the next year by approximately six percentage points. No (statistically significant) evidence is found that this stepping stone function varies by number of children or age of the youngest child.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Economic impacts from the promotion of renewable energies : the German experience : Final report /

by Manuel Frondel | Rheinisch-Westf lisches Institut f r Wirtschaftsforschung | Ritter, Nolan | Vance, Colin.

Publisher: Essen, Germany Rheinisch-Westf lisches Institut f r Wirtschaftsforschung 2009Description: 40 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 38-40Summary: The allure of an environmentally benign, abundant, and cost-effective energy source has led an increasing number of industrialized countries to back public financing of renewable energies. Germany's experience with renewable energy promotion is often cited as a model to be replicated elsewhere, being based on a combination of far-reaching energy and environmental laws that stretch back nearly two decades. This paper critically reviews the current centerpiece of this effort, the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), focusing on its costs and the associated implications for job creation and climate protection. We argue that German renewable energy policy, and in particular the adopted feed-in tariff scheme, has failed to harness the market incentives needed to ensure a viable and cost-effective introduction of renewable energies into the country's energy portfolio. To the contrary, the government's support mechanisms have in many respects subverted these incentives, resulting in massive expenditures that show little long-term promise for stimulating the economy, protecting the environment, or increasing energy security. In the case of photovoltaics, Germany's subsidization regime has reached a level that by far exceeds average wages, with per-worker subsidies as high as 175,000 euros.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Education, first occupation and later occupational attainment : cross-cohort changes among men and women in Britain /

by Bukodi, Erzsebet | University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for ongitudinal Studies.

Publisher: London, U.K. University of London, Institute of Education, Centre for Longitudinal Studies 2009Description: PDF.Other title: University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2009 Bibliography : p. 22-24 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper examines cohort and gender differences in occupational attainment in Britain. Using data from the three British Birth Cohort studies, I investigate the process of occupational attainment up to age 34 using a scale based on occupational earnings. Although qualifications appear to have stronger effects on occupational attainment for women than for men at both labour market entry and in the midthirties, I find no consistent evidence that the importance of qualifications is becoming greater across cohorts, either for men or for women. Also, there are no indications that the effects of occupation at labour market entry on men?s and women?s later occupational attainment have been strengthening over time. However, the findings do point to the possibility of cohort-specific effects: the experience of men and women in the 1958 cohort consistently differs from that of those in both the 1946 and 1970 cohorts.Availability: (1)
