Inequality reexamined /

by Sen, Amartya.

Edition: New ed.Publisher: Oxford, U.K. Oxford University Press 1995Description: :242: p. : 1ill. ; 22cm.Summary: Amartya Sen argues that the dictum "all people are created equal" serves largely to deflect attention from the fact that we differ in age, gender, talents, and physical abilities as well as in material advantages and social background. He argues for concentrating on higher and more basic values: individual capabilities and freedom to achieve objectives. By concentrating on the equity and efficiency of social arrangements in promoting freedoms and capabilities of individuals, Sen adds an important new dimension to arguments about such vital issues as gender inequalities, welfare policies, affirmative action, and public provision of health care and education.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (3).

Inequality, unemployment and contemporary Europe. / [in:] International Labour Review

by Sen, Amartya.

Edition: Vol. 136 No. 2 (Summer)Publisher: 1997Description: 17 p.Online Access: Journal article International Labour Review - Wiley Brotherhood staff see Library for further information Notes: Article in International Labour Review, Vol. 136 (1997), No. 2 (Summer)Summary: Inequality of incomes can differ substantially from inequality in other 'spaces' such as well-being, freedom, health, longevity, and quality of life. Given the massive sclae of unemployment in contemporary European economies, concentrating only on income inequality can be particularly deceptive for studying economic inequality, since unemployment causes deprivation in many other ways as well. This paper examines the different ways in which unemployment creates deprivation (other than through low income), and what implications these issues have on the relative merits of American and European attitudes respectively to individual responsibility and social commitment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Less income inequality and more growth : are they compatible? : Part 1. Mapping income inequality across the OECD /

by Hoeller, Peter | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Joumard, Isabelle | Pisu, Mauro | Bloch, Debbie.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper ; no. 924.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: ECO/WKP(2012)1 10 January 2012 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Countries differ widely with respect to the level of labour income inequality among individuals of working age. Labour income inequality is shaped by differences in wage rates, hours worked and inactivity rates. Individual labour income inequality is the main driver of household market income inequality, with family formation as well as self-employment and capital income dispersion playing a smaller role. Household disposable income dispersion is lower in all OECD countries than household market income inequality, due to the redistributive effect of tax and transfer systems, but redistribution differs widely across countries. This paper maps income inequality for all OECD countries across various inequality dimensions and summarises them in inequality outcome diamonds. It also provides a cluster analysis that identifies groups of countries that share similar inequality patternsAvailability: (1)

Lifelong learning, participation and equity /

by Chapman, Judith D. (ed.) | Cartwright, Patricia (ed.) | McGilp, Jacqueline (ed.).

Publisher: Dordrecht, The Netherlands Springer 2006Description: xxvi, 364 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: In many countries, schools, universities and other traditional learning institutions are not providing for the educational needs of all members of the community. In many communities, particularly in regional, rural and disadvantaged areas, there are only limited options for people to undertake learning. Limited participation in learning has the danger of reinforcing people?s alienation from mainstream education and from participation and inclusion in social institutions and economic and community life more generally. This book addresses the challenge of identifying effective ways of accommodating the learning needs of all people and in so doing achieving the goals of lifelong learning for all. ; Contents: Preface -- Lynne Kosky -- Contributors -- Introduction -- Judih Chapman, Patricia Cartright, Jacqueline McGilp -- Editoral by Series Editors -- Chapter One -- Education and Equity: Perspectives from the OECD -- Tom Schuller -- Chapter Two -- Ethical Issues in Lifelong Learning and Educaion 25 -- Richard Bagnall -- Chapter Three -- Participation in Learning: Why, What, Where and How do People Learn? 47 -- Malcolm Skihbeck -- Chapter Four -- Attracting New Groups into Learning: Lessons from Research in England 79 -- Veronica McGivney -- Chapter Five -- Together for a Change: A Partnership Approach to Individual -- and Comimunity Learning 93 -- David Beck -- Chapter Six -- Lifelong Lerning for All: The Challenge for Adults and Communities 111 -- Malcolm Skilbeck -- Chapter Seven -- Older Learners and Engagement with the Labour Market 139 -- Tom Karmel and Davinia Woods -- Chapter Eight -- Overcoming Barriers that impede Participation in Lifelong Learning -- Judith Chapman, Jacqueline McGilp, Patricia Cartwright -- Marian de Souza and Ron Toomey -- Chapter Nine -- Men's learning in Small Remote Towns in Australia 175 -- Bary Golding -- Chapter Ten -- The Generation In-Between The Participation of Generation X -- in Lifelong Learning 205 -- Richard Rymarz -- Chapter Eleven -- Youth Transitions to Work and Further Education in Australia 217 -- Johanna Wyn -- Chapter Twelve -- Schools and Lifelong Learners 243 -- Jennier Bryce -- Chapter Thirteen -- Lifelong Learning: Helping Address Disadvantage throughCommunity-Based Learning Projects 265 -- Carolyn B Broadbent, Jill Burgess and Maureen Boyle -- Chapter Fourteen -- Lifelong Learning and the Arts: "The Arts are not the Flowers but the Roots of Education" 287 -- Susan Crowe -- Chapter Fifteen -- Lifelong Learning, Family Learning and Equity 303 -- /Mal Leicester -- Chapter Sixteen -- An Analysis of Problems, Issues and Trends in the Provision of Lifelong Learning: Lessons Learned 317 -- Judith ChapmanAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
