Book Description

Gender, Growth and Trade examines the role of women as a flexible, contingent workforce in Germany and Japan. This unique comparative study of two of the world's foremost industrialized economies situates empirical results in the context of broader cultural concerns, considering issues such as market flexibility, unemployment, union policy and labour market institutions.


'The book provides useful insights into the determinants of women's labour force participation - a crucial issue in the current debate on sustaining the welfare state in the context of declining fertility and population ageing, and the resulting shrinkage of the economically active population.' - International Labour Review
