This book examines unemployment compensation (UC) throughout the world. The book has four principal objectives. The first objective is to establish the link between macroeconomic performance in the product market and the labor market and to argue for the necessary role of unemployment protection. The second is to provide an overview of UC programs throughout the world supported by case studies of individual countries from four specific regions. The third objective is to introduce the reader to the issues of actuarial costs of UC programs. Finally, three important problem areas of UC are examined: coverage, continuing benefit eligibility, and the activation of the long-term unemployed.
