Adequacy of Retirement Income After Pension Reforms in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe: Nine Country Studies

Robert Holzmann & Ufuk Guven

Adequacy of Retirement Income After Pension Reforms in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe: Nine Country Studies by Robert Holzmann & Ufuk GuvenThe former transition countries of Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe (CESE) inherited defined benefit public pension systems financed on a pay-as-you-go basis. Under central planning, these systems exhibited fiscal strains which worsened during the early years of the transition and became unsustainable under a market economy and projected population aging. All CESE countries introduced reforms that varied but typically focused on issues of sustainability rather than benefit adequacy. Nine case studies-Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia-suggest...

Tunisia's Global Integration: A Second Generation of Reforms to Boost Growth and Employment

Ndiame Diop & World Bank

Tunisia's Global Integration: A Second Generation of Reforms to Boost Growth and Employment by Ndiame Diop & World BankTunisia's past integration policies have significantly increased FDI flows in the manufacturing sector, triggering a rise of textiles and clothing and mechanical and electrical components exports through participation to EU production networks and increasing productivity, growth, and job creation. In spite of these results, important challenges remain. FDI increases are not accompanied by a rapid increase in domestic investment. The business climate of the domestic market-oriented sector can be further improved. Trade integration largely has bypassed non-tourism service sectors and the structural...

Trade Unions and the State: The Construction of Industrial Relations Institutions in Britain, 1890-2000

Chris Howell

Trade Unions and the State: The Construction of Industrial Relations Institutions in Britain, 1890-2000 by Chris HowellThe collapse of Britain's powerful labor movement in the last quarter century has been one of the most significant and astonishing stories in recent political history. How were the governments of Margaret Thatcher and her successors able to tame the unions? In analyzing how an entirely new industrial relations system was constructed after 1979, Howell offers a revisionist history of British trade unionism in the twentieth century. Most scholars regard Britain's industrial relations institutions as the product of a largely laissez faire system of labor relations, punctuated by occasional government...

The China Price

Alexandra Harney

The China Price by Alexandra HarneyA landmark eyewitness exposé of how China's factory economy competes for Western business by selling out its workers, its environment, and its future In The China Price, acclaimed Financial Times correspondent Alex Harney uncovers the truth about how China is able to offer such amazingly low prices to the rest of the world.

Getting a Cut: A Contextual Understanding of Commission Systems

Richard Seltzer

Getting a Cut: A Contextual Understanding of Commission Systems by Richard SeltzerThe perspective of those who receive commissions has been largely ignored, and much of the literature on commissions and bonuses focuses on the concerns of management without regard for the employees or much recognition that understanding the employee perspective contributes significantly to fostering a more productive work environment. Getting a Cut is based on semi-structured interviews with over 450 people between the two volumes. The diverse respondents from across the U.S. provide a people-first perspective on work within commission structures. Understanding what people think about their...

Government Unions and the Bankrupting of America

Daniel DiSalvo

Government Unions and the Bankrupting of America by Daniel DiSalvoGovernment-workers unions have been political juggernauts in the U.S. since the unseen collective-bargaining-rights revolution of the 1960s and '70s. These unions are different and more powerful than those that battle owners and managers in the private sector. To advance their interests, unions in the public sector have created cartels with their political allies, mostly in the Democratic Party, to the exclusion of the taxpaying public.

In this Broadside, Daniel DiSalvo shows us how this government takeover happened and tells us what can be done to protect the public interest. The fiscal consequences...

Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution

Jane Humphries

Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution by Jane HumphriesThis is a unique account of working-class childhood during the British industrial revolution. Using more than 600 autobiographies written by working men of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Jane Humphries illuminates working-class childhood in contexts untouched by conventional sources and facilitates estimates of age at starting work, social mobility, the extent of apprenticeship, and the duration of schooling. The classic era of industrialization, 1790-1850, apparently saw an upsurge in child labour. While the memoirs implicate mechanization and the division of labour in this increase,...

Gender Disparities in Africa's Labor Market

Jorge Saba Arbache

Gender Disparities in Africa's Labor Market by Jorge Saba ArbacheWomen's earnings are a fraction of male's earnings in several African countries. It is tempting to conclude that this wage gap is a sign of discrimination against women in the labor market. Yet this book uses new datasets to show that the gap is not simply the result of discrimination in the labor markets, but rather the result of multiple factors, including access to education and credit, cultural values and household duties, and, above all, labor market conditions. It shows that gender disparities grow when economies are not functioning well and labor markets are tiny. More than the effect...
