Richard Layard is one of Britain's foremost applied economists, whose work has had a profound impact on the policy debate in Britain and abroad. This book contains his most influential articles on the subject of unemployment. It is published along with a companion volume Inequality , which deals with these topics and with economic transition. Unemployment explains what causes unemployment and proposes remedies to reduce it. There is a strong focus on how unemployed people are treated and how this affects unemployment - including Layard's well-known recommendation of a job-guarantee for long term unemployed people. Other key topics covered are the effect of unions and wage bargaining, the effect of low skill, and the possible role of rigid employment laws. The book opens with Richard Layard's personal credo Why I became an Economist .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An account of the contribution of one of Britain's leading labour-market economists to one of the key economic policy debates of the 1980s and 1990s. Few people have made such a consistent and influential contribution over the years as Layard. He helped found the respected Employment Policy Institute and has ensured the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics remains a major source of innovative academic work on the economy and the labour market. He can claim to be one of the intellectual godfathers of the welfare to work strategy that the government is now putting into practice.' - John Monks, Times Higher Education Supplement
