Backing the future : why investing in children is good for us all /

by Aked, Jody | New Economics Foundation | Steuer, Nicola | Lawlor, Eilis | Spratt, Stephen.

Publisher: London, U.K. New Economics Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The report makes clear the need for a comprehensive investment programme in preventative services for children and young people that would both save spending on dealing with the impact of problems later, and deliver wider benefits to society. To achieve lasting change, Backing the Future demonstrates why it is essential to address the impact of the structural factors affecting the circumstances of children?s lives, such as poverty and inequality, together with psychological and social dimensions of their well-being. We show how this can be achieved and present an economic model for how the UK Government could fund a transition to a more preventative system, therefore turning aspiration into reality.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A specific focus of this submission is the in-depth experiences of those who have participated in these studies. As such, the 'data' contained here is largely descriptive aiming to let the participants 'speak for themselves' as far as is possible. The submission presents evidence of African Australians' experiences of social exclusion and discrimination in five domains of social life: employment, education, health, justice and social participation.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).
