La machine et le chômage : le progrès technique et l'emploi by Alfred Sauvy( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in French and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le plus connu de nos économistes qui, par la clarté de ses exposés et la pénétration de ses idées a toujours su intéresser un vaste public, nous offre ici l'aboutissement de plusieurs années de réflexion sur l'emploi et le progrès technique. Cette question absolument fondamentale à un moment où le progrès semble incapable de résorber un chômage toujours plus menaçant, n'avait jamais été clairement exposée. Alfred Sauvy, par cet ouvrage, a voulu pallier cette lacune grave. L'importance de ce livre n'a pas échappé à une autorité mondiale telle Wassily Léontief qui écrit : "Alfred Sauvy traite "le sujet" avec un ensemble peu commun de compétence technique, de sens de l'Histoire et de bon sens, que ses collègues plus spécialisés et le public en général ont appris à attendre de lui. Les vues exposées sur le "déversement" et sur le "circuit de travail" ouvrent en particulier une nouvelle voie dans la recherche si délicate de la croissance et de l'emploi."

Access to education. New possibilities by Alfred Sauvy( Book )

14 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is difficult for us today to imagine that equal educational opportunity, with which we are so deeply preoccupied, was at one time considered to be if not an evil at least a futile objective, and that those who held such an opinion were completely insincere and even disinterested. For a vertically stratified society equality of education had to be opposed be­ cause it would disturb an equilibrium as vital as that of a building. In the Middle Ages only the Church was able to look for new members at the bottom of the social ladder, since ecclesiastical office was not inherited by birth. But efforts in this direction were necessarily very limited, even if only because of the material obstacles to such an aim. Equality of education, as well as any other type of equality could not even be imagined by the aristocracy whose very existence would have been threatened. Its initial indifference was followed by active opposition. When it became possible to formulate the question of the diffusion of education, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the principle itself met with a fundamental objection. The ruling class, idle by its very nature, feared that the workers and especially those on the land would abandon their productive labours, now felt to be degrading, and swell the ranks of the parasites in the cities
