In Finland, it is forecasted that mass unemployment will persist for the whole of the 1990s. How can unemployment be brought down and the trend towards long-term unemployment be broken? Are flexibility and structural reforms the right answers or what macroeconomic policy measures are necessary? What is the role of targetted policy measures, education and training in the fight against unemployment? What are the health effects of unemployment? What of the wage dispersion in the Finnish labour market? These issues were discussed at the symposium on unemployment organized by VATT on 25 and 26 November 1993. This book contains the material presented at that symposium.
