Are we all Keynesians again ? /

by Carling, Robert.

Publisher: St Leonards, NSW The Centre for Independent Studies 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.cis.org.au/issue_analysis/IA106/IA106.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "The unfolding global economic debacle has led many governments, including our own, to reach into their policy toolkits for fiscal stimulus measures. In doing so, they have revived fiscal policy as a counter-cyclical tool, which was so much in vogue until the early 1970s that Richard Nixon famously declared We are all Keynesians now. Are we all Keynesians again? At first sight, fiscal pump priming might appear to have a lot going for it in current conditions: inflation is receding; spare capacity is increasing, at least in the major developed economies; and the crisis in the banking system is weakening conventional monetary policy. Even so, the revival of activist fiscal policy ought to be highly controversial because the 1970s and 1980s saw a new consensus emerge that it was ineffective or even damaging. The lessons from that era remain valid today but are being ignored by governments desperate to prop up sagging economies. There is a debate on these issues in the United States, but they have received much less scrutiny in Australia." -- Executive summaryAvailability: 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).

Does part time employment help or hinder lone mothers' movements into full time employment? /

by Fok, Yin King | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Jeon, Sung-Hee | Wilkins, Roger.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute Working Paper ; no. 25/09.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: A significant demographic trend in recent decades in Australia has been the growth in lone parent families as a proportion of all families, associated with which has been growth in welfare dependency. This has led to considerable policy focus on increasing lone parent participation in employment. A key issue that has arisen for the Government in pursuing this policy goal is whether, in the context of a welfare system that accommodates the combining of part-time employment with welfare receipt, part-time employment helps or hinders a progression to full-time employment, and whether and how this depends on characteristics such as the number and ages of dependent children. In this study, we investigate this issue using Australian panel data on female lone parents over the period 2001 to 2007. We estimate dynamic random effects multinomial logit models of three labour force states ? not employed, employed part-time, and employed full-time ? allowing investigation of whether part-time work represents a stepping stone to full-time employment. Evidence in support of the stepping stone hypothesis is found. Part-time employment increases the probability of full-time employment in the next year by approximately six percentage points. No (statistically significant) evidence is found that this stepping stone function varies by number of children or age of the youngest child.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
