Abstract:

This volume, the first in a new series by the National Bureau of Economic Research that compares labor markets in different countries, examines social and labor market policies in Canada and the United States during the 1980s. It shows that subtle differences in unemployment compensation, unionization, immigration policies, and income maintenance programs have significantly affected economic outcomes in the two countries. For example:.-Canada's social safety net, more generous than the American one, produced markedly lower poverty rates in the 1980s.-Canada saw a smaller increase in earnings.
