The Politics of Unemployment

Hans F. Sennholz January 24, 2019

The modern age of economic intervention began under the pretense of helping workers Professor Sennholz demolishes the entire edifice that gave rise to this movement We were told that workers must be organized into unions They must have job protection They safety must be guaranteed by legislation There must be a minimum wage People under the age of 15 must never engaThe modern age of economic intervention began under the pretense of helping workers Professor Sennholz demolishes the entire edifice that gave rise to this movement We were told that workers must be organized into unions They must have job protection They safety must be guaranteed by legislation There must be a minimum wage People under the age of 15 must never engage remunerative work, for that would be exploitation And workers need retirement income If unemployment rises, nothing short of full scale central planning is required So on it goes, except for one inconvenient fact the age of intervention accomplished precisely the opposite of its stated goals for workers The unemployment of the 20th century was government created And today, workers are taxed, regulated, and regimented to their own detriment Here is the uncompromising case against the entire interventionist regime erected on behalf of workers No one does a better job in showing how the state has harmed the very group that it claimed to be backing The title suggests merely politics, but this book is filled with economic theory It s one of the few books to give a full critique of unemployment insurance, for example, showing it as a destructive intervention that should be but is not questioned by the mainstream literature Sennholz refutes dozens of theoretical fallacies and exposes the bad policies that flow from them His focus on current trends like mandated benefits explains how they have so drastically increased labor costs He also deals with the feminist arguments against the free market, and makes a strong case for the benefits of the underground economy A principled and readable work that unfies theoretical rigor and a passion for liberty ISBN 091088417X 356 pp hb
