Reviews

"A hugely welcome series of studies of direct job creation policies in multiple countries that make clear that national employment guarantees can provide work security and mitigate poverty. Of special note is the efficacy of the Jefes y Jefas program in Argentina. A federal job guarantee is a policy that should be adopted in the USA. The essays in this volume offer the information needed to insure that an American program is designed and implemented paying close attention to the strengths and weaknesses of other nation's experiences with employment guarantees." - William A Darity, Professor of African and African-American Studies and Economics and Chair, Department of African and African American Studies, Duke University, USA
