Alternative measures of well-being . /

by Boarini, Romina | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Johansson, sa | Mira D Ercole, Marco.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper no. 476.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper assesses if GDP per capita is an adequate proxy as a measure of wellbeing or whether other indicators are more suitable for this purpose. Within the national accounts framework, other better measures of economic resources exist, but they are closely correlated with GDP per capita and are not as readily available. Illustrative calculations to ?extend? measures of economic resources to include leisure time, the sharing of income within households and distributional concerns suggest that cross-country ranking of based on these indicators and GDP per capita are generally similar, although they have evolved differently over time. Across OECD countries, levels of most measures of specific social conditions are significantly related to GDP per capita while changes over time are not. However, survey based data on happiness and life-satisfaction across OECD countries are only weakly related to levels of GDP per capita. Overall, measures of GDP per capita and economic growth remain critical for any assessment of wellbeing but they need to be complemented with measures of other dimensions of well-being to get a comprehensive picture of well-being.Availability: (1)

Benchmarking working Europe /

by European Trade Union Institute.

Publisher: Brussels European Trade Union Institute 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 109-114 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This year's Benchmarking Working Europe report embarks upon a social stocktaking of the reaction to and impact of the financial, economic and social crisis as a means of feeding into the post-crisis and EU2020 debate. The indicators presented in this year's Benchmarking Working Europe reveal that the progress in growth and employment over the past growth cycle has been practically wiped out in the course of the past year: the EU average employment rate is back to its 2006 level, while unemployment has increased by two percentage points in a single year. Yet the impact of the economic crisis on labour markets displays considerable variation from one country to another.Availability: (1)

PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Occasional paper Brotherhood of St Laurence 1998" - Front cover Paper delivered on Thursday 13 August 1998 Delivered at State Film Theatre 1 Macarthur St, East MelbourneSummary: The 1998 Sambell Oration was delivered by Fred Argy, author of Australia at the Crossroads and one of Australia’s leading economists. Fred Argy is no stranger to the needs of practical decisionmaking. As a public servant he was secretary to the Campbell Inquiry into the Australian financial system; Australia’s ambassador to the OECD; director of the Economic Planning Advisory Council, and a senior Treasury adviser. Believing that economic policy should be about improving our society, Fred Argy argues that the issue for Australia is not whether we should be trying to improve economic efficiency through structural reform, but how we can do this with acceptable employment and social outcomes.

Prosperity without growth? : the transition to a sustainable economy

by Jackson, Tim | Sustainable Development Commission.

Publisher: London, U.K. Sustainable Development Commission 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2009Summary: Economic growth is supposed to deliver prosperity. Higher incomes should mean better choices, richer lives, an improved quality of life for us all. That at least is the conventional wisdom. But things haven't always turned out that way. Growth has delivered its benefits, at best, unequally. A fifth of the world's population earns just 2% of global income. Inequality is higher in the OECD nations than it was 20 years ago. And while the rich got richer, middle-class incomes in Western countries were stagnant in real terms long before the recession. Far from raising the living standard for those who most needed it, growth let much of the world's population down. Wealth trickled up to the lucky few. Prosperity consists in our ability to flourish as human beings, within the ecological limits of a finite planet. The challenge for our society is to create the conditions under which this is possible. It is the most urgent task of our times.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Rising inequality as a root cause of the present crisis /

by Stockhammer, Engelbert | University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy esearch Institute.

Publisher: Amherst, Mass. Political Economy Research Institute (PERI), University of Massachusetts-Amherst 2012Description: PDF.Other title: University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2012 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The paper argues that the economic imbalances that caused the present crisis should be thought of as the outcome of the interaction of the effects of financial deregulation with the macroeconomic effects of rising inequality. In this sense rising inequality should be regarded as a root cause of the present crisis. We identify four channels by which it has contributed to the crisis. First, rising inequality creates a downward pressure on aggregate demand since it is poorer income groups that have high marginal propensities to consume. Second, international financial deregulation has allowed countries to run larger current account deficits and for longer time periods. Thus, in reaction to potentially stagnant demand two growth models have emerged: a debt-led model and an export-led model. Third, (in the debt-led growth models) higher inequality has led to higher household debt as working class families have tried to keep up with social consumption norms despite stagnating or falling real wages. Fourth, rising inequality has increased the propensity to speculate as richer households tend hold riskier financial assets than other groups. The rise of hedge funds and of subprime derivatives in particular has been linked to rise of the superrich.Availability: (1)
