The macroeconomic impact of the New Deal for Young People
AbstractThe New Deal for Young People (NDYP) is one of the main components of the UK government’s Welfare-to-Work strategy aimed at raising employment and reducing benefit dependency. It combines elements of an active labour market programme with a stricter benefit regime.

While the impact of the NDYP on the wider economy appears modest it is associated with an economic gain.
