The Canadian Labour Market: Readings in Manpower Economics.
Kruger, A.M., Ed.; Meltz, N.M., Ed.
Canadian manpower problems were researched by a group of economists at the University of Toronto in areas of interest to manpower planners and students of the labor market. The dissatisfaction of policy makers with the present operation of the labor market is discussed in three areas: (1) inadequate output due to alleged labor shortages, (2) mismatching of labor demand and labor supply, and (3) manpower implications of the trade-off, the dilemma between employment and inflation. An analysis of the current labor market is made with reference to the writings of the 19th century classical economists Adam Smith and J.S. Mill. Studies on technological progress and labor displacement, structural unemployment, the analysis of labor market information, and educational planning are included. The output of postsecondary educational institutions is evaluated relative to intellectual development, educational services provided, and market evaluation. (CH)
