Tito Boeri & Jan van Ours

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format] | Chapter 10 [PDF only] | Chapter 12 [PDF only]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"With a focus on state-of-the-art theoretical models and empirical evidence, Tito Boeri and Jan van Ours deftly explain how and when the invisible hand becomes all thumbs in the labor market. Their view of institutions as a response to imperfect markets, rather than a cause of them, is novel and overdue in labor economics textbooks."--Alan B. Krueger, Princeton University

"By focusing on frontline policy debates, this book should hold the interest of students who often find traditional labor economics courses a bit dry."--Alan Manning, London School of Economics and Political Science

"There is no real equivalent to this book. And, although it is an undergraduate-level textbook, it may also interest economists working at government institutions and international organizations who want an accessible review of the academic literature."--Fabien Postel-Vinay, University of Bristol
