Paul Smyth, General Manager Research and Policy Centre Brotherhood of St Laurence (2003-2013Summary: The authors explore the concept of the ‘social investment state’ examining major writings in which it has been developed. They consider policy developments in the United Kingdom and the European Union which exemplify the model, and reflect on elements of it which are emerging (though less explicitly at the federal level) in Australia. They argue that strengths of the social investment model include its reuniting of economic and social policy, its commitment to equality of opportunity and its fostering of economic participation (with the caution that participation is often too narrowly defined).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Blue collared : the shrinking world of work in Tasmania /

by Madden, Kelly | Anglicare Tasmania.

Publisher: Hobart, Tas. Anglicare Tasmania 2003Description: 95 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2003 Summary: The qualitative component of this research indicates that unemployed people had a strong preference for permanent employment, placing a very high value on the paid entitlements and sense of security. Many of the participants had extensive experience of casual work but this had not led to more permanent employment. This research indicates that the distinct categories of ‘unemployed’ and ‘casual worker’ which emerge from static accounts of the labour market would be much more accurately conceptualised as a cycle, with a sub-group of people moving between casual work and unemployment on a very regular basis.Availability: (1)

Boon or bane? : others' unemployment, well-being and job insecurity /

by Clark, Andrew E | Institute for the Study of Labor | Knabe, Andreas | R tzel, Steffen.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The social norm of unemployment suggests that aggregate unemployment reduces the well-being of the employed, but has a far smaller effect on the unemployed. We use German panel data to reproduce this standard result, but then suggest that the appropriate distinction may not be between employment and unemployment, but rather between higher and lower levels of labour-market security, at least for men. Men with good job prospects, both employed and unemployed, are strongly negatively affected by regional unemployment. However, insecure employed men and poor-prospect unemployed men are less negatively, or even positively, affected. There is however no clear relationship for women. We analyse labour-market inequality and unemployment hysteresis in the light of our results.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Caught in the trap : the disincentive effect of social assistance /

by Bargain, Olivier | Institute for the Study of Labor | Doorley, Karina.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2009Summary: While financial incentives usually have a significant effect on the labor supply of married women and single mothers, the evidence about the participation elasticity of childless singles,and single males especially, is more scant. This is, however, important in countries like France and Germany, where single individuals constitute the core of social assistance recipients. As yet, there is no conclusive evidence about whether, and to what extent, this group is affected by the financial disincentives embedded in the generous redistributive programs in place in these countries. In this paper, we exploit a particular feature of the main welfare scheme in France (Revenu Minimum Insertion, RMI), namely that childless adults under age 25 are not eligible for it. Using a regression discontinuity approach and the French micro-census data, we find that the RMI reduces the employment of uneducated single men by 7%-10%. Important policy implications are drawn.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
