7. 1 A Labor Supply Model That Incorporates Household Production The Basic Model for an Individual: Similarities with the Labor-Leisure Model Ø Household production time replaces leisure time.

Comprehensively surveying the field of labor economics, this market-leading textbook showcases both current and classic research. The authors develop the modern theory of labor market behavior, summarize empirical evidence that supports or contradicts each hypothesis, and illustrate the usefulness of various theories for public policy analysis. In addition to the policyexamples woven throughout the narrative, the text offers two or more boxed examples per chapter that illustrate the application of theory in a nontraditional, business, historical, or cross-cultural context. The Seventh Edition provides updated coverage and updated references to the professional literature throughout, as well as many new boxed policy examples and new end-of-chapter numerical problems. An all-new companion Web Site rounds out the teaching and learning resources of the supplements program.

I'm reviewing the paperback international edition. I thought I'd save some money by ordering the paperback instead of the hardcover for my Labor Economics class. Problem is, the paperback version is missing about 130 pages. You can compare the hardcover and the softcover to verify. I got assigned to read chapters that aren't even in the book. Now I have to scramble and order a hardcover version.

Chapter 12: Gender, Race and Ethnicity in the Labor Market - (not in the paperback version)
Chapter 13: Unions and the Labor Market - (not in the paperback version)

Was I wrong to assume that they were the exact same book? I don't think so. But, I will admit not comparing the page lengths of book versions BEFORE I placed my order was an oversight on my part. Other than that, the book is good enough, I guess. It's not very mathematical. It's either very boring or only slightly boring, depending on your mood. It's also very informative though. The information, itself, is priceless, though. Labor is such an important part of the economy, so you could argue that the benefits of reading this book outweigh the costs.

The book does not look like the one on the picture, probably remade hard cover, no impressum inside.

dont be deceived by my "love" of this book- if we are talking about informationwise, and i would say yes, you get the bang for your buck, but it is still an economics text book, and i sincerely hope that your professor does more then just read straight out of the book. on a side note, there is a VERY helpful website with chapter summaries and practices quizzes... using this was the most beneficial thing i did all semester!

Fast delivery and like new condition on top of saving money. The book itself is for a Labor Economics class, the first few chapters are good, but it written from the neo perspective and I'm not a fan of neoclassical economics, though understanding them is essential to improving public policy.
  • Drelahuginn
Builds concepts appropriately and was a great aid for my labor econ class.
  • Fordg
I really love this product especially with this purchasable rental price! by the way I did not received any information with my mail. I wonder how should I return this back at the end of the semester?
