Providing health care : the economics of alternative systems of finance and delivery by Alistair McGuire( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text presents economic arguments which suggest why market failure is no extensive in this sector and, consequently, why regulation in both financing and provision is necessary. There is full discussion of various problems in the health care sector - output measurement, the definition of efficiency, and the problems of monitoring performance. The reforms of the UK health care sector are discussed in the light of these difficulties and the volume provides an analytical perspective within which the choice of various means of financing and providing health care can be evaluated. A number of chapters compare the UK health care system with alternative systems in Europe and the USA, and an historical perspective of previous UK systems is given

The economics of skills obsolescence : theoretical innovations and empirical applications by A. de Grip( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes papers that are selected from the papers presented at a conference on Understanding Skills Obsolescence. This volume advances both the theoretical and empirical understanding of the causes and the effects of skills obsolescence. Increasingly policy makers are focusing on the importance of skills and lifelong learning. The reason for this is that workers with sufficient and up-to-date skills are more productive and have more potential to remain employed. However, the processes that influence skill obsolescence, have largely been neglected in labor economics. It was in the 1990s that skill issues came to the top of the agenda, because of the general awareness of the rapid technological developments that affect the demand for human capital. Although the analysis of skill-biased technological change is at the heart of this debate, in recent years, the literature has become wider than simple consideration of this aspect and has started to embrace other causes of obsolescence. The papers in this volume are selected from the papers presented at a conference on Understanding Skills Obsolescence. They advance both the theoretical and empirical understanding of the causes and the effects of skills obsolescence
Britain's training deficit : the Centre for Economic Performance report by Richard, Ed Layard( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 12 papers that were produced as a result of a seminar program on selected issues central to the debate over job training in Great Britain. The first paper, "Why We Need a Training Reform Act" (Richard Layard, Ken Mayhew, Geoffrey Owen), examines existing deficiencies in vocational education and training in Britain and proposes a strategy for remedying them. Discussed in the following eight papers are the role of firms, individuals, and government in providing/improving vocational education and training: "The Welfare Economics of Training" (Richard Layard); "The Demand for Skilled Labour" (D. L. Bosworth, R. A. Wilson); "Training Quality and Trainee Exploitation" (Paul Ryan); "Labour Markets and Skill Utilization" (Alice Lam, David Marsden); "The Response of Individuals" (Joan Payne); "New Training Institutions at the Local Level" (Robert J. Bennett); "Training Policy for the Unemployed" (Richard Jackman, Marcus Rubin); and "The Economic Value of Education and Training" (Christopher Dougherty). The following papers examine lessons regarding vocational education and training from outside the United Kingdom: "a Comparison of National Institutions" (David Finegold, Colin Crouch); "The German Training System" (Peter B. Berg); and "Social Skills from Mass Higher Education: Lessons from the us" (David Soskice). Sixty tables/figures and a subject index are included. Most papers contain substantial bibliographies. (Mn)
