Cost-Benefit Aspects Of Manpower Retraining. Manpower Papers No. 2.
Hughes, James J.
This report reviews the literature on cost-benefit analysis of retraining and discusses possible approaches to conducting such an analysis. Exemplary programs in Sweden and the United States are described. Despite the existence of externalities which preclude exact calculation of costs and benefits, the report concludes that retraining is desirable, since even the less favorable results show that the programs are worthwhile. Programs with greater flexibility in responding to labor market conditions are recommended. (BH)
