Capital in the twenty-first century /

by Piketty, Thomas.

Publisher: Cambridge, Mass. Harvard University Press. The Belknap Press 2014Description: viii.Notes: Goldhammer, Arthur, translatorSummary: What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, `Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the eighteenth century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality. Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality--the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth--today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again. A work of extraordinary ambition, originality, and rigor, Capital in the Twenty-First Century `reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The transition from unemployment to work : are casual jobs a short cut to permanent employment?

by Chalmers, Jenny | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre | Kalb, Guyonne.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2000Description: 43 p. PDF.Other title: SPRC Discussion Paper no. 109.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: October 2000 Summary: This study examines the effect of casual work in shortening the time taken to move from unemployment into permanent work using longitudinal data from the Survey of Employment and Unemployment Patterns. The analysis is based on comparison of the transition rate from unemployment to permanent work with the combined transition rates of unemployment to casual work and casual work to permanent work. We use hazard rate models to estimate each of the transition rates. The models include observed and unobserved heterogeneity and allow for correlation between the transition rates. The evidence presented suggests that disadvantaged unemployed people can benefit from accepting casual work in their search for permanent work, although they are still less likely than others to obtain permanent work.Availability: (1)
