Jobs for the Future: Strategies in a New Framework. Alternatives for the 1980's, No. 13.
Baily, Martin Neil; And Others
This volume consists of four articles dealing with strategies for combatting unemployment in the 1980s. In the first article, entitled "The Problem of Unemployment in the United States," Martin Neil Baily examines the nature of unemployment, the inflation trade-off and the natural rate of unemployment, indicators of structural change, and sources of increase in the natural rate. Alan Cranston, in his article entitled "The Path to Full Employment," deals with such issues as increased productivity; business labor, and government productivity teams; fiscal and monetary policy and the deficit; the fight against structural unemployment; and equal employment opportunity. The next article, "A Quarter Century of Employment and Training Policy: Where Do We Go from Here," by Sar A. Levitan and Garth L. Mangum, deals with such topics as Federal involvement in employment training programs, the past performance and problems of such programs, and an employment and training program for the rest of the decade. In the final article, "Reducing Youth Unemployment: The Case for a Fresh Approach," Stanley S. Litow and Susan Amlung address the costs of youth unemployment, government response to the problem, current youth services available in New York City, Federal and city roles in such programs, and programs that work.
