Handbook of Labor Economics Volume 4B

£85.00

Product description

"Volume 4 very nicely illustrates several important trends in labor economics:increased concern about proper research design, more contact with those in other social sciences, greater reliance on data collected by those conducting the research, and (in some areas) more productive interplay between theory and data. The authors have themselves been major contributors to these developments; they combine a participants enthusiasm with a detached perspective on the challenges and gaps that remain." - Charles brown, University of Michigan

There are 1130 pages including index (page numbers carry on from Volume 4A). Laminated boards with small scuff marks along the front and rear boards. There is a thin 9.5 cm scratch along the rear board which crosses a review by Jere R. Behrman but does not obscure it. There is also a small 1.5 cm scratch on the top right corner of the rear board. There are small bumps to the top and bottom of the spine and small bumps to the top right corner and bottom edge of the front board. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. There is also no discolouration to the pages. It is tightly bound. Weight 2.7kg.

What factors affect the ways individuals participate in labor markets? "New Developments and Research on Labor Markets" (volume 4B) proposes answers to this and other questions on important topics of public policy. Leading labor economists demonstrate how better data and advanced experiments help them apply economic theory, yielding sharper analyses and conclusions. The combinations of these improved empirical findings with new models enable the authors of these chapters to reveal how labor economists are developing new and innovative ways to measure key parameters and test important hypotheses.
