Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1986 - Business & Economics - 201 pages
In this study, a leading expert sheds light on the reasons for high unemployment in Britain and various ways it can be reduced. Analyzing the roots of unemployment in the first half of the book, Layard provides a definitive statement of the modern theory of unemployment and presents a mass of evidence about what causes unemployment in Britain. He then proposes practical measures to reduce unemployment without raising inflation, such as increasing the demand for goods and services that the unemployed can supply, and suggests implementing a tax-based incomes policy to ensure that inflation stays low.
