Since the beginning of the economic crisis of the 1980s considerable research has been dedicated to the study of the unemployment problem. Nevertheless, the phenomenon has not become fully understood, nor are its consequences adequately prevented. In this important new volume, On the Mysteries of Unemployment, economists and social scientists come together to offer the reader the latest insights on unemployment and policies regarding unemployment from the perspectives of both disciplines.
On the Mysteries of Unemployment contains four main sections. Part One provides an introductory chapter and general overview. Part Two contains rich contributions that provide new insights from an economic science perspective, while Part Three offers a balanced view from social scientists. The final section is devoted to the examination of policy issues concerning unemployment.
This volume, unique in its field, will be of interest to researchers, students, politicians and policy-makers.
Studies from the field of economics that primarily aim at making a contribution to science; studies from the field of social sciences that primarily aim at contributing to science; studies from both economics and social sciences that primarily focus on policies regarding the unemployment problem.
