Unemployment in a Prosperous Economy. A Report of the Princeton Manpower Symposium (May 13-14, 1965).
Bowen, William G., Ed.; Harbison, Frederick H., Ed.
The papers in this volume deal with the causes, cures, and magnitude of unemployment. Musgrave, Killingsworth, and Okun discuss the opposing structuralist and deficient demand theories of unemployment. Garth Mangum, Curtis Allen, William Caples and Alice Rivlin offer their experience concerning the role of government and industry in curing unemployment, through both vocational training programs, and increased public expenditures to increase aggregate demand. William Bown and Paul Jacobs present their thoughts on the dimensions of unemployment. (BH)
