Arbeitsmarktökonomik : mit 57 Tabellen by Wolfgang Franz ( Book )
27 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dieses Buch bietet die für den deutschsprachigen Raum wohl umfassendste Darstellung des Arbeitsmarktgeschehens. Ein besonderes Gewicht liegt auf der engen Verzahnung von theoretischen mit empirischen Analysen unter Berücksichtigung des institutionellen Regelwerkes auf dem Arbeitsmarkt und verbunden mit wirtschafts-, insbesondere arbeitsmarktpolitischen Handlungsalternativen. Das Problem der Arbeitslosigkeit und ihre Bekämpfung nimmt hierbei einen besonders breiten Raum ein. Zahlreiche "Fallbeispiele" stellen Bezüge zu aktuellen Entwicklungen her. Wichtige Fakten und ihre statistische Erfassung - wie etwa die Arbeitslosenstatistik - werden ausführlich dargestellt und diskutiert
Structural unemployment by Wolfgang Franz ( Book )
8 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is devoted to a theoretical and econometric analysis of structural unemployment by making use of the Beveridge curve, i. e., the relationship between unemployment and vacancies. It is investigated to what extent various kinds of inflexibilities such as a higher regional and qualifications mismatch between labor supplied and demanded and an increasedchoosiness of employers and job seekers can contribute to an explanation forthe high and persistent unemployment in the eighties. Based on theoretical foundations the studies marshall the empirical evidence for or against the mismatch hypotheses and give a critical assessment of theBeveridge curve. Moreover, policy implications and recommendations are discussed at some length
Young and out in Germany : on the youths' chances of labor market entrance in Germany ( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the labor market entrance of young people in the Federal Republic" of Germany. The main focus is on failures during this stage. First, an overview of the youth" labor market in Germany is given. Then, the transition from vocational training to work is" analyzed: The duration of the first spell of non-employment after completion of formal" vocational training is analyzed by means of a proportional hazard function approach. Besides the" strong influence of the human capital variables there is a striking effect of the family background" of the youths. The following section addresses the extent to which early failures in the work" history have long-lasting effects on future incomes. There is some evidence for a permanent" income reduction

German and American wage and price dynamics : differences and common themes by Wolfgang Franz ( Book )
13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The evolution of unemployment in West Germany and the U.S. stands in sharp contrast, with German unemployment much lower from 1960 to the early 19705 but substantially higher from 1984 to 1988. This paper provides a framework for examining the relationship between inflation and unemployment that sheds light on these developments. The theoretical section develops a new nonstructural model of wage and Price adjustment that integrates severa! concepts that have often been treated separately, including Phillips curve "level effects, " hysteresis "change effects, " the error-correction mechanism, and the role of changes in labor's share that act as a supply shock. The empirical analysis reaches rwo striking conclusions. First, during 1973-90coefficients in our German wage equations arc remarkably similar to those in the U.S., with almost identical estimates of the Phillips curve slope, of the hysteresis effect, and of the NAIRU. The two countries also share similar inflation behavior, in that inflation depends more closely on the capacity utilization rate than on the unemployment rate, The big difference berween the two countries is that there is no feedback from wages to prices in Germany, and so high unemployment does not put downward pressure on the inflation rate. During the 19705 and 19805 in Germany there emerged a growing mismatch between the labor market and industrial capacity, so that the unemployment rate consistent with the mean (constant-inflation) utilization rate ("MURU") increased sharply, while in the U.S. the MURU was relatively stable. The German utilization rate in late 1990was about 90 percent, considerably higher than the estimated MURU of 85 percent. Accordingly, we conclude that the Bundesbank was appropriately concerned about the acceleration of inflation implied by the tight product market of that period
