Modern Labor Economics: Theory and Public Policy 12th edition gives students a thorough overview of the modern theory of labour market behaviour and reveals how this theory is used to analyse public policy. Designed for students who may not have extensive backgrounds in economics, the text balances theoretical coverage with examples of practical applications that allow students to see concepts in action.

Experienced educators for nearly four decades, co-authors Ronald Ehrenberg and Robert Smith believe that showing students the social implications of the concepts discussed in the course will enhance their motivation to learn. As such, the text presents numerous examples of policy decisions that have been affected by the ever-shifting labour market.

This text provides a better teaching and learning experience – for you and your students. Here's how:
  • Demonstrates concepts through relevant, contemporary examples: Concepts are brought to life through analysis of hot-button issues such as immigration and return on investment in education.
  • Addresses the Great Recession of 2008: Coverage of the current economic climate helps students place course material in a relevant context.
  • Helps students understand scientific methodology: The text introduces basic methodological techniques and problems, which are essential to understanding the field.
  • Provides tools for review and further study: A series of helpful in-text features highlights important concepts and helps students review what they've learned.
