Innovation and Employment is a comprehensive study of the various aspects and principles of the problem of unemployment in Great Britain. It aims to provide new approaches and newfangled proposals that delineate from traditional methods of solving the problem of unemployment.
The formulation of a practical solution to the problem of unemployment is the main objective of the book. Prior to the presentation of the solution, correct facts and figures are gathered and the basic principles of employment are identified and explained. Finally, the author suggests the creation of a National Work Service to find a special job-fit between the self-starters and the unemployed, which hopefully can create a parallel economic arrangement of continuous economic growth.
Economists, labor planners, demographers, politicians, and students of economics and sociology will find this book invaluable.
