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)

Environmental policy and the economic downturn /

by Bowen, Alex | Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy | Stern, Nicholas.

Publisher: London, U.K. 2010Description: 29 p.Other title: Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy working paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010Summary: This paper considers how environmental policies should respond to macroeconomic downturns. It first explores the implications of the global economic downturn of 2008-09 for environmental policies, focusing in particular on the example of action against climate change. The arguments for and against activist fiscal policies in general are then reviewed, and the case made that a demand-induced downturn provides a very good opportunity to undertake a necessary step change in the public spending component of environmental policies and to start working through a backlog of public investment to improve the environment. Fiscal policy should be used to improve the allocation of resources across time and space. Recent fiscal stimuli are considered in the light of this discussion. It is also argued that there is little cause to delay the introduction of price signals to internalize environmental externalities. But the levels at which such signals should be set requires careful analysis; changes over the business cycle may be warranted, depending on the nature of the environmental externality and the cause(s) of the business cycle in question.Availability: (1)

Off to a good start? : jobs for youth /

by Sonnet, Anne | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010Description: 158 p. : ill.Online Access: OECD iLibrary (Read only) Notes: December 2010 ISummary: Youth have been very hard hit by the recent jobs crisis. The youth unemployment rate is approaching 20% in the OECD area and is likely to remain high well into the recovery. Coping with a job loss in a weak labour market - when job offers are scarce and competition for them among jobseekers is fierce, is difficult for anyone. But for young workers, and especially for the disadvantaged among them, failure to find a first job or keep it for long can have negative long term consequences on their career prospects that some experts refer to as 'scarring'. Reducing high youth unemployment should be a centrepiece of our policies. We cannot allow this crisis to result in a 'scarred' generation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
