Description

Ben Jackson, Associate Professor & Tutorial Fellow in Modern History, Faculty of History & University College, Oxford University, gives a talk at the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford. Dr Jackson questioned what was distinctive about the neoliberal understanding of labour and traced the various dimensions of this radical ideological innovation, encompassing neoliberals? understanding of the economic relationship between trade unions and employment, inequality and inflation; of the distinction between the state and civil society; and ultimately the neoliberal attempt to dissolve the language of class altogether through the sponsorship of alternative discourses about ?human capital? and producer and consumer interests.

14.662 Labor Economics II (MIT) 14.662 Labor Economics II (MIT)

Description

This is the second of a two-part sequence of courses in labor economics. The course sequence is also open to qualified students in related fields and classes may be taken individually or out of sequence. This part of the sequence is principally concerned with issues relating to the determinants of the wage and salary distribution. The first half is organized around topics in wage determination, which are of particular interest for current research and policy and culminates with a focus on recent debates about the increasing dispersion of wage and salary income. The second half of the course is focused on labor market institutions and technological changes, and relates the debate about the income distribution to other major changes in the structure and texture of advanced industrial societi This is the second of a two-part sequence of courses in labor economics.

Solving Simultaneous Equations - Trade Unions and Minimum Wages

Description

A film on using simultaneous equations to understand the effects of trade unions and minimum wage laws on wage rates. Part of a series of films from the METAL (Mathematics for Economics: enhancing Teaching and Learning) project that examines spending options in a number of contexts, and uses linear equations to explore constraints in markets. They are fundamental building blocks for a course of mathematics for economics. These video clips and animations can be viewed in isolation, or via the learning pathway links to related materials in a Question Bank.

Neoliberalism workshop: Implications for future visions of work and organisation

Description

Richard White, Senior Lecturer in Economic Geography, Sheffield Hallam University, gives a talk for the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford, hosted the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society in November 2015. Dr White examined how we can value and harness alternative work practices in a neoliberal society. He challenged the negativity associated with neoliberalism as a label and argued that decentralisation of capitalism could be harnessed to help us think differently about social justice and empowerment in our everyday spaces and lives. He said understanding the pervasive nature of non-commodified work practices promoted greater awareness around ?alternative?, non-capitalist spaces within the advanced economies of the western world.
