The economic consequences of rolling back the welfare state by A. B Atkinson( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 2,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text warns that many late-1990s fashionable policy proposals to roll back the welfare state could have unintended negative side effects, based as they are on an oversimplified view of the workings of the economy and of how welfare arrangements affect economic incentives. The author asks whether there are ways in which the welfare state plays a positive role in the modernization of the economy. He develops models of the labour market and of the growth of the corporate economy, which provide insight into the role and consequences of unemployment insurance, and the implications of moves to private pension funds. A.B. Atkinson does not attempt to determine whether or not spending should be cut. Rather, his aim is to clarify the nature of the charges levelled against the welfare state
Social indicators : the EU and social inclusion by Tony Atkinson( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book is to make a scientific contribution to the development of social indicators for the purposes of European policy-making. It considers the principles underlying the construction of policy-relevant indicators, the definition of indicators, and the issues that arise in their implementation, including that of the statistical data required. It seeks to bring together theoretical and methodological methods in the measurement of poverty/social exclusion with the empirical practice of social policy. Ö The key areas covered by the book are poverty, including its intensity and persistence, income inequality, non-monetary deprivation, low educational attainment, unemployment, joblessness, poor health, poor housing and homelessness, functional illiteracy and innumeracy, and restricted social participation." - DUST COVER

Public economics in action : the basic income/flat tax proposal by A. B Atkinson( )

43 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author reviews different areas of public economics in which there has been active research in recent years - namely the theory of optimum taxation, public choice theory, general equilibrium analysis of incidence, numerical tax-benefit modelling, and econometric studies of work incentives - and asks how these contribute to our understanding of this particular policy reform. He also indicates the promising directions for future research. The author does not argue for or against the basic income/flat tax proposal, but believes it should be on the agenda for any serious discussion of tax and social security reform for the twenty-first century

Analysing and measuring social inclusion in a global context by A. B Atkinson( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study demonstrates the analytical and operational relevance of "measuring social inclusion" as a practical tool with which to assess the impact and monitor the progress of interventions at the local, regional, national and global levels. While the study offers examples drawn from around the world, it focuses particularly on the experience of the European Union.--Preface
Top incomes over the twentieth century : a contrast between continental European and English-speaking countries by A. B Atkinson( )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a pioneering research programme on the evolution of top incomes, this volume brings together studies from 10 OECD countries. This rapidly growing field of economic research investigates the top segment of the income distribution by using data from income tax records over the past century. As well as describing the source data and methods employed, the authors also discuss the dramatic changes that have occurred at the top of the income scale throughout the 20th century. This fascinating study is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive historic overview of top income distribution over the last century. It looks at why top incomes shares fell markedly in the first half of the 20th century and why, more recently, there has been a striking difference in the top income distribution between continental Europe and English-speaking OECD countries, like the UK, USA, and Australia. Written by the top names in the field, this seminal work provides rich pickings for those with an interest in inequality, development, the economic impact of war, taxation, economic history, and executive compensation"--Jacket

Economic transformation in Eastern Europe and the distribution of income by A. B Atkinson( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who gains and who loses from economic transformation in Eastern Europe is a key question, but one which is too rarely discussed. This book examines the evidence about the distribution of income and poverty under Communism in Eastern Europe. Contrary to popular impressions, a great deal of information exists about the distribution of earnings and household incomes in Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland. With glasnost much material previously kept secret in the USSR became available. The book contains extensive statistical evidence that has not previously been assembled on a comparative basis, and takes the story right up to the end of Communism. The findings bring out the differences in experience between countries under Communism: between Central Europe and the former Soviet Union, between Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland, and between the newly independent states of the former USSR."--Jacket

The Personal distribution of incomes by A. B Atkinson( Book )

25 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and German and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1976, the essays in this volume are concerned with the distribution of income and wealth. The papers were first presented at the Royal Economic Society's conference in 1974, which examined the evidence concerning the personal distribution of earnings, compared the distributions apparent in different periods and societies, and studied the association between personal attributes and income. The contributions, from internationally-renowned authors, reflect these areas, and address the questions surrounding inequality, the taxation of wealth and capital transfers that remain relevant in twenty-first century society
Incomes and the welfare state : essays on Britain and Europe by A. B Atkinson( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Welfare State is a key policy issue of the 1990s. The essays in this book depart from much of the recent economic debate in emphasising the positive contributions of the Welfare State, and in assessing its efficiency in relation to the objectives which it is intended to achieve. These objectives are not just the alleviation of poverty but more broadly the provision of security and the redistribution of income. Part A of the book sets the current debate in the context of the current evidence about income inequality and poverty in Europe. Part B analyses the existing role of the Welfare State, with particular reference to retirement pensions and unemployment benefit. Part C investigates proposals for reform and security. What is the case for greater targeting? How can we design a social safety net? What is the future of European social protection policy?
