tjg-lrg-bksThe Job Guarantee: Toward True Full Employment

Edited By Michael J. Murray and Mathew Forstater

Purchase at Amazon

Questions raised include: Can the effectiveness of the job guarantee approach be measured, if so how, and what are the conclusions? How do these conclusions reinforce the theory? What are the practical applications? What is the empirical evidence to reinforce the theoretical application?
