Sharing the Work
Wed, 2017-04-05 08:04

“The pioneering feminist economist Myra Strober knows that sharing the work means sharing all of the work, and no one brings this point home with more wit and wisdom. Strober’s beautiful memoir effectively dramatizes the fraught interactions between personal and professional success. We can all learn from her story.” —Nancy Folbre, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Digitalization, Immigration and the Welfare State
Wed, 2017-04-05 08:17

"Using the economic and social laboratory of Sweden, Mårten Blix provides a fascinating window into the future of the welfare state with the threats and opportunities from a massive increase in immigration and rapid digitilisation of the economy. The Swedish Model’s core features of collective bargaining, broad unionisation and a strong fiscal base are eroding, increasing inequality and challenging the legitimacy of the political consensus to date. His interesting observations and balanced analysis of the growing importance of platform-based jobs and life-long learning have implications much beyond Sweden."–  Erik Berglöf, London School of Economics

Fiscal Policy in Dynamic Economies
Wed, 2017-04-05 08:25

"Economists have, in recent years, attributed the depressed economic conditions we are facing in the world to hysteresis, which is regarded as the permanent effect of fiscal consolidations after the global recession of 2008-2009. Tan Kim Heng’s book is timely and has significant contributions to this discussion because he forges an important link between fiscal consolidations and weakening future potential output in developed economies: spending on public investment, which is not a vote-enhancing policy instrument, always gives way to other forms of government spending."-- CHEN Kang,  National University of Singapore
