This book contains a set of edited, critical essays that identify the central problems confronting scholars and policy makers concerned with the labor market. Special emphasis is given to the tension between completing approaches to the study of labor markets -- from neoclassical applied microeconomics to institutionalism to radical economics. Topics include the emergence of unemployment as a social phenomenon and as a theoretical object in economics, how labor markets actually work, discrimination and racial inequality, culture and human capital, and poverty policy as it relates to labor force participation.
