The sluggish recovery from the 2008-9 recession and recent political election campaigns in Europe and the United States have brought a renewed focus on labour-market polarization and the role of public policy in smoothing the effects of job separations. In addition to providing income support, social assistance programs in many jurisdictions also provide a variety of active labour-market programs. These programs often include a mix of job-search assistance and job placements ("job first" programs) as well as education and training (skills-building programs). The ultimate goal of these policies is to reduce dependency on benefits by getting people back in the workforce. Join authors Jason Adams and David Rosé to discuss the impact of this.
