Unemployment: Cause and Cure - Patrick Minford

Martin Robertson, 1983, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ.

From the cover: “Unemployment in Britain rose from 1-2 per cent of the labour force in the 1950s-60s to a staggering 12 per cent in 1982. Over 3 million people are now out of work. How has this happened? What can be done? Patrick Minford argues that the world recession and government anti-inflation policies are secondary factors. In this provocative and controversial book he argues that the root causes of unemployment in Britain are high wage costs and low productivity, and that these are in turn caused by the system of unemployment benefits and the power of the unions.”
