Why you should read Jobs
This in-depth research from the World Bank covers the latest on developing world employment: the economic, political and social aspects of what constitutes work in many emerging nations. The text precisely defines a concept – a job – that is difficult to pin down, given the myriad ways people labor and the complex significance that work has for human beings. The team of World Bank analysts who compiled this study uses its wide-ranging data to press the case for better developmental policies that will facilitate job growth and enhance the jobs that millions already perform worldwide. getAbstract recommends this far-reaching report to economists, policy makers and executives who want to understand how to address one of the 21st century’s biggest economic and social challenges: jobs.
