It provides a conceptual framework for the use of existing technological knowledge as an employment strategy in developing countries. In this context, Professor Sen stresses the importance of adequate institutional and incentives structures and pricing policies." "This study, conducted by Professor Sen for the ILO in the 1970s, emphasizes the use of social benefit-cost analysis as a tool to evaluate employment policies and optimal resource allocation in developing countries. Although largely analytical, it also deals with empirical problems of unemployment measurement in India." "This book will be of interest to general readers, and will specifically appeal to labour and development economists and policy-makers."--Jacket." ;
