Who's not working and why : employment, cognitive skills, wages, and the changing U.S. labor market by Frederic L Pryor( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the Last Quarter-Century, the U.S. labor market has experienced some disturbing trends. Despite apparent economic prosperity, joblessness among less-educated prime-age males is rising and, in addition, an increasing number of university graduates are taking "high-school jobs." Moreover, except for a thin layer of university-educated workers, most in the labor force are experiencing stagnating or falling real wages. Simultaneously, the inequality of wages is increasing within most groups. Using an entirely new approach that takes account of the cognitive skills of U.S. workers and the detailed occupational structure of the labor force, Frederic L. Pryor and David L. Schaffer explore the underlying causes of these trends. To explain both employment and wages, they demonstrate that what a worker knows is becoming increasingly more important than a worker's formal education. They also present evidence that because of differences in wages between men and women, women are replacing men in many occupations. Finally, they synthesize these and other labor market characteristics to explain the increasing inequality of wages. The authors have written this empirical study in non-technical language for those concerned with labor market problems and policies. For specialists they analyze a variety of technical issues in the appendices

The future of U.S. capitalism by Frederic L Pryor( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This multidisciplinary book looks at the long-term forces that are shaping the most important economic institutions in the US in the coming decades. The style is lively and clear, with a series of appendices focusing on technical issues of interest to specialists. The author foresees a declining rate of growth, a widening of the inequalities of income, and an increasing share of individual markets taken by a small number of large corporations. Combined with declining social solidarity and trust in government, he foresees an ever harder edge to the way in which capitalism will function in the future. The economic role of government will decline in the fields of stabilization and regulation, but government expenditures will become higher due to the aging of the population. This provocative book looks at the US from a novel viewpoint and shows how many commonly accepted views of the US economy need to be revised.--Publisher description
Economic evolution and structure : the impact of complexity on the U.S. economic system by Frederic L Pryor( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Frederic L. Pryor uses the concept of structural complexity to show how changes in the population, the labour force, the structure of industry, the financial system, foreign and domestic trade, and the government sector are related to the same general trend in the US economic system. He also investigates the impact of these changes on the functioning of the system, exploring such matters as the long-term rising unemployment rate, the allegedly increasing volatility of the economy, the changing degree of competition, and the evolving economic role of the government. The discussion is aimed at those who wish to view the economy as a whole and who are concerned with problems of understanding an economy that is becoming increasingly complex along many different dimensions. For specialists a number of appendices discuss a variety of technical issues
The red and the green : the rise and fall of collectivized agriculture in Marxist regimes by Frederic L Pryor( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reorganizing the agricultural sector into large-scale state and collective farms was the most radical transformation of economic institutions implemented by Marxist governments. Frederic Pryor provides perspective on this unique experiment by comparing in a systematic and original fashion the changes in the organization of agriculture in all of the world's Marxist nations. This approach allows not only a clearer understanding of the major lines of agricultural policy and organization in these nations but also a keener insight into the reasons underlying the variations among them.

"Capitalism Reassessed provides a broad view of different types of advanced capitalist economic systems. It is based on an empirical analysis of twenty-one OECD nations.

The analysis compares the economic and social performance of different capitalist economic systems along a variety of economic and social criteria. It also analyzes how capitalism will change in the twenty-fi rst century. The appendices referred to in the book may be found at: www. swarthmore.edu/SocSci/Economics/fpryor1"--Provided by publisher
