Since the current recession began in December 2007, the American economy has lost a staggering total of 6.5 million jobs. The unemployment rate is hovering near 10% for the first time in over a quarter-century. And still, each month, several hundred-thousand more people are losing their jobs. It seems as if words like “hope” and “opportunity” have gone the way of our economy. For many people, the very idea of unemployment (not to mention the reality of it) is a life-changing trauma at the top of their stress list, disrupting their lives and marriages, and even attacking their sense of self-worth. For others, this unenviable circumstance might well be a blessing in disguise—marking the start of a new career path or even self-employment. It all depends on how it’s handled. Back to Work! is a short, easy-to-read book that will help you cope with the emotional and spiritual effects of job loss, from an author who has been there. Three times. In Back to Work! Stephen Adams speaks from experience as he helps you get from wherever you are now—to your next career. This little book is full of illustrations from Stephen’s own life and the lives of other successful career remodelers.

In Back to Work, Bill Clinton offers a plan to get America out of its economic crisis and "back into the future business." Clinton details how to lay a foundation for long-term prosperity, offering specific recommendations on how to boost employment rates, increase bank lending and corporate investment, and double exports. He emphasises that antigovernment sentiments in the public rarely contribute to a prosperous growth. Conflict between the government and the private sector has given the U.S. a weak economy, growing income inequality, and a decline in its competitive position. Cooperation, he stresses, is more conducive to success than conflict. To Clinton, America “at its core is an idea – the idea that no matter who you are or where you're from, if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll have the freedom and opportunity to pursue your own dreams.” Back to Work is an effort to rejuvenate the idea that is America.

What can be done to create more and better jobs in Europe and Central Asia? And should there be specific policies to help workers access those jobs? The authors of this book examine these questions through the lens of two contextual factors: the legacy of centralized planned economies and the mounting demographic pressures associated with rapid aging in some countries and soaring numbers of youth entering the workforce in others. The authors find the following: Market reforms pay off, albeit with a lag, in terms of jobs and productivity. A small fraction of superstar high-growth firms accounts for most of the new jobs created in the region. Skills gaps hinder employment prospects, especially of youth and older workers, because of the inadequate response by the education and training systems to changes in the demand for skills. Employment is hindered by high implicit taxes on formal work and barriers that affect especially women, minorities, youth, and older workers. Low internal labor mobility prevents labor relocation to places with greater job creation potential. Back to Work: Growing with Jobs in Europe and Central Asia asserts that to get more people back to work and to grow with jobs, countries, especially late reformers, need to regain the momentum for economic and institutional reforms that existed before the economic crisis. They should lay the fundamentals to create jobs for all workers, by pushing reforms to create the enabling environment for existing firms to grow, become more productive, or exit the market and let new firms emerge and succeed (or fail fast and cheap). They should also implement policies to support workers so that those workers are prepared to take on the new jobs being created, by having the right skills and incentives, unhindered access to work, and being ready to relocate.

"From the 1960s onwards, Japan's rapid economic growth coincided with remarkably low youth unemployment. However, since the 1990s the ease with which young people have historically moved from education to employment has ended, and unemployment is now a real and growing problem in contemporary Japan. Japan's Emerging Youth Policy examines how the state, experts, the media as well as youth workers, have responded to the troubling rise of youth joblessness in 21st century Japan. The answer that emerges fromthis analysis is as complex as it is fascinating, but comprises two essential elements. First, instead of institutional 'carrots and sticks' as seen in Europe, actors belonging to mainstream Japan have deployed controversial labels such as NEET ('Not in Education, Employment or Training') to steer inactive youth into low-wage jobs. However, a second approach has been crafted by entrepreneurial youth support leaders that builds on what the author refers to as 'communities of recognition'. As demonstrated at real sites of youth support, one such methodology consists of 'exploring the user' (i.e. the support-receiver) whereby complex disadvantages, family relationships and local employment contexts are skilfully negotiated. It is this second dimension in Japan's response to youth exclusion that suggests sustainable solutions to the employment dilemmas that virtually all post--industrial nations currently face but which none have yet seriously addressed. Based on extensive fieldwork draws on both sociological and policy science approaches, this book will be welcomed by students scholars and practitioners of Japanese, East Asian and comparative social policy, welfare, culture and society"--
