They discuss questions of deregulation, competition, efficiency, productivity, the impact of wage structures on unemployment and the role of government. The book also considers the relationship of the social welfare system to the labor market and related questions of equity, the role of the tax system, the impact of gender, and differences between families and single wage-earners.
