A Nation in Search of Jobs: Six Possible Policy Suggestions for Employment Creation in South Africa
I provide six possible employment creating policy options within the arena of principally, but not exclusively, active labour market policy. The notion is that interventions in these areas should provide for short-term and possibly long-term employment creation avenues and options for the currently unemployed. In some cases, interventions are provided that could plausibly also stem the severe loss of jobs the economy experienced since the recession. Acknowledgements: The research, from which this paper emanates, was commissioned and funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the National Planning Commission (NPC).
