Walwei, Ulrich; Werner, Heinz; Konig, Ingeborg
This document contains three papers from an international conference on "ways and means for more employment." The first paper, "Employment Policy Comparisons and Policy Advice" (Ulrich Walwei), covers the German labor market in the second half of the 1990s and requirements for longer-term employment success through coping with structural change and addressing employment possibilities for less competitive, low-skilled workers. The second paper, "Employment Policy Successes with Different Framework Conditions and Concepts" (Heinz Werner), considers the following questions: Are there constant "model countries"? Is a high level of employment necessary? What is meant by successful employment policy? What conclusion can be drawn from international experiences? What are the consequences of different wage-replacement benefits in the event of unemployment? The final paper, "Figures and Graphs on the Labor Market Development in Selected Countries" (Ingeborg Konig), contains graphs and charts focusing on the following:(1) unemployment rates in selected industrial countries, 1983-1999; (2) employment trends in selected industrial countries, 1983-1999; (3) employment rates in European Union (EU) states, the United States, and Japan in 1999; (4) gross domestic product and persons in civilian employment, 1983-1999; (5) growth rates of gross domestic product and civilian labor force in Denmark, Germany, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, and the United States, 1983-1999; (6) economic growth, employment growth, and change in unemployment in the European Union states, the United States, and Japan, 1991-1995; and (7) economic growth, employment trends, and unemployment rate in each of the European Union states, the United States, and Japan, 1986-2002.
