A good time for making work pay? : Taking stock of in-work benefits and related measures across the OECD /

by Immervoll, Herwig | Pearson, Mark.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs 2009Description: PDF.Summary: The twin problem of in-work poverty and persistent labour market difficulties of low-skilled individuals has been one of the most important drivers of tax-benefit policy reforms in OECD countries in recent years. Employment-conditional cash transfers to individuals facing particular labour-market challenges have been a core element of make-work-pay policies for some time and are now in use in more than half of the OECD countries. They are attractive because they redistribute to low-income groups while also creating additional work incentives. But like all social benefits, they have to be financed, which creates additional economic costs for some. This paper discusses the rationale for in-work benefits (IWB), summarises the main design features of programmes operated in OECD countries, and provides an update of what is known about their effectiveness in terms of reducing inequalities and creating employment. As policies aiming to promote self-sufficiency, wage subsidies and minimum wages share a number of the objectives associated with IWB measures. We review evidence on the effectiveness of minimum wages and wage subsidies and discuss links between these policies and IWBs. Finally, we outline some potential consequences of weakening labour markets for the effectiveness of make-work-pay policies.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005Description: 164 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: One of a series of reports on different OECD countries, this compact book includes a survey of the main employment barrier for older workers (that is, those aged 50+) in Australia, an assessment of the existing measures to overcome these barriers, and a set of policy recommendations. While the focus is on encouraging older Australians to remain longer in the workforce, the policy considerations involve not only employment assistance but also income support (especially age pensions) and taxation. There are numerous graphs and tables comparing the situation in Australia with those of other industrialised countries.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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)
