Less Work for Less Pay: Why Economic Prosperity Is Beyond the Ability of Central Bankers and Federal Governments to Accelerate T

Randall N. Margo

Less Work for Less Pay: Why Economic Prosperity Is Beyond the Ability of Central Bankers and Federal Governments to Accelerate T by Randall N. MargoMarshaling an array of data, Less Work for Less Pay shows rather than tells us why economic prosperity for America and other Western nations is now beyond the ability of central bankers and federal governments to accelerate through their creative stimulus actions. Instead, these measures often serve to delay the inevitable rebalancing of labor, debt, taxes and regulatory reform that is vital for greater economic competitiveness among these nations. Multinational corporations figured this out years ago as they continue to aggressively pursue foreign markets and tax advantages in the world economy....

Expanding Job Opportunities in Ghana

Maddalena Honorati & Sara Johansson de Silva

Expanding Job Opportunities in Ghana by Maddalena Honorati & Sara Johansson de SilvaGhana was, until very recently, a success story in Africa, achieving high and sustained growth and impressive poverty reduction. However, Ghana is now facing major challenges in diversifying its economy, sustaining growth, and making it more inclusive. Most of the new jobs that have been created in the past decade have been in low-earning, low-productivity trade services. Macroeconomic instability, limited diversification and growing inequities in Ghana's labor markets make it harder for the economy to create more jobs, and particularly, better jobs. Employment needs to expand in both urban...
