The unemployment Nobel

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Monday 11 October 2010 8:39 pm KCS-content AS HIGH unemployment once again stalks the western world, the Nobel committee has rewarded three economists who revealed how the process of searching for work affects unemployment. As Dale Mortensen and Christopher Pissarides put it in 1998: “Market friction, the costly delay in the process of finding trading partners and determining the terms of trade, is ignored in the standard theory of perfectly competitive markets”.Beginning in the 1970s, their work looked behind the brute fact of unemployment to consider how would-be employers and employees could really find each other and what stopped that happening. This allowed assessment of the impact of government policy on unemployment. So Pissarides was keen to stress yesterday in relation to Greece, where unemployment is at a 10 year high, that its problem is made worse by regulation, including, ironically, strong job protection laws that discourage firing and hence hiring.Pissarides also referred to the conclusion of his 1992 paper, Loss of Skill During Unemployment, which shows how an acute unemployment shock can become chronic if the unemployed lose their skills by not continuing to engage with the workplace.The trade unions now planning to hold the coalition to task might also reflect that in 2003 Pissarides explained the relatively lower unemployment in Britain compared to elsewhere in Europe in part by “the decline of trade union power”.The three winners who share this year’s economics NobelCHRISTOPHER A. PISSARIDESPissarides’ most influential paper is arguably “Job Creation and Job Destruction in the Theory of Unemployment (with Dale Mortensen)”, published in the Review of Economic Studies in 1994.Christopher Pissarides is Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and holder of the Norman Sosnow Chair in Economics. He specialises in the economics of unemployment, labour-market theory, labour-market policy and more recently he has written about growth and structural change. He has written extensively in professional journals and his book Equilibrium Unemployment Theory, now in its second edition, is a standard reference in the economics of unemployment.In 2005 he was awarded the IZA Prize in Labor Economics (jointly with Dale Mortensen) for his work on unemployment.Born: 1948, Nicosia, CyprusAffiliation at the time of the award: London School of Economics and Political Science, London, United KingdomDALE T. MORTENSENDale T. Mortensen is the Ida C. Cook Professor of Economics at NorthwesternUniversity. His research and teaching interests are in labour economics, macroeconomics and economic theory.Mortensen pioneered the theory of job search and search unemployment and extended it to study labour turnover, research and development, personal relationships, and labour reallocation. His insight, that friction is equivalent to the random arrival of trading partners, has become the leading technique for the analysis of labour markets and the effects of labour market policy. The development of equilibrium dynamic models designed to account for wage dispersion, the time series behavior of job and worker flows, and economic growth through product innovation are the principal topics of his current research.He is the 2005 co-winner of the IZA Prize in Labor EconomicsBorn: 1939, Enterprise, OR, USAAffiliation at the time of the award: Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald The unemployment Nobel last_img read more

See all posts by Royston Wild Stock market crash: should you go dip buying with this FTSE 250 share? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The stock market crash has created plenty of investment traps that share pickers are falling into. Hays (LSE: HAS) is one that I think comes into this category. The recruitment giant’s share price has attracted some healthy dip buying after its plunge to three-year lows in March. But the FTSE 250 firm’s much too risky in my opinion given the scale of the storm approaching the UK jobs market.It’s a worry that latest research from Manpower this week has exacerbated. According to the recruiter’s latest Employment Outlook Survey, employers’ hiring intentions for the third quarter of 2020 have slumped to -12%. This is the worst result since records began in the early 1990s, the survey showing declines in all major sectors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…On a brighter note, the majority (57%) of respondents to Manpower’s study said that they expect hiring conditions “to return to pre-Covid-19 hiring levels by this time next year.” It’s not a view I’m prepared to share given the storm coming the UK’s way, not just due to the coronavirus crisis but because of the growing threat of a no-deal Brexit at the end of 2020.A FTSE 250 share under pressureThe view isn’t miserable for all of London’s listed recruiters. I recently shared why I think SThree’s focus on niche labour markets could help it weather the storm. But this isn’t something that Hays can rely upon. Its net is slung much far and wide and this makes it much more exposed to the broader fortunes of the domestic economy.The scale of FTSE 250 company Hays’ troubles was illustrated in early April’s market update for quarter one. Then it warned that it had seen “a very material deceleration in client and candidate activity” and as a consequence, that operating profit for the fiscal year to June 2020 would be “materially below”  broker expectations of £190m. Profits for financial 2019 came in at shade  below £250m.Clearly investors need to be wary of significant problems in the upcoming financial year too. During the financial crash of 2008/09, net fees at Hays slumped 40% from peak to trough over a nine-month period. But the economic fallout of the coronavirus saga threatens to be much, much worse. The Bank of England has predicted the sort of downturn not seen since the early 1700s!Better buys out there?Okay, Hays’ broad geographic footprint means that it sources less than a quarter of net fees from these shores. But conditions threaten to be difficult in its other territories too. As I commented with SThree, I am extremely nervous over the outlook for the German labour market too. This is Hays’ single largest market and it accounts for 27% of fees.Hays investors also need to be concerned about its reliance on a strong market for permanent vacancies. It generates 43% of its business from roles of this type versus 57% for temporary positions. These roles are of course the first to dry up when economic conditions slumpAll things considered, the recruiter is packed with too much risk for my liking. I’d happily avoid this battered FTSE 250 firm and invest my cash elsewhere.last_img read more

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. I glanced at a headline recently about a young adult who’d taken his life savings from an NS&I savings account to invest money in a Stocks and Shares ISA.All that birthday money and savings from paper rounds, taken from a ‘safe’ National Savings and Investments account and ‘risked’ on the stock market. Is it a good idea? You bet it’s a good idea. Let me explain why.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Why I’d invest money rather than save itA quick glance at the NS&I website reveals the top interest rate for cash savings is around 1%. I can understand why many would be attracted to NS&I because it’s backed by the UK government. But if you compound your savings with that rate of return over decades there’s a good chance the value of your savings will fall. Indeed, the rate of general inflation tends to run higher than 1%. So the spending power of your money could decline over time.Meanwhile, over the long haul, the general stock market has historically returned an annualised figure in mid-to-high single-digit percentages. Sure, there have been ups and downs along the way, but averaging the return over decades and expressing it as a yearly figure is encouraging. It beats cash savings hands down.You can open a Stocks and Shares ISA when you are 18. And that’s a great age to begin investing. With your entire adult lifetime ahead, you have plenty of time to compound your investments. And the principle of compounding is key to building wealth. Just like interest builds up in a cash savings account, you can plough back all your returns from shares too.The wonderful characteristics of compoundingAnd those returns will arrive in the form of shareholder dividends or lumps of capital if you sell an investment. Put them all back into shares and those returns will earn further returns and so on. Meanwhile, the great thing about compounding is it accelerates and grows exponentially over time. If you compound for 40 or 50 years, you could be amazed by the sheer size of your annual returns towards the end of the period.That’s why starting as young as you can is a great idea. If you are 18 now and savvy enough to understand the benefits of compounding investments, I envy you! But don’t stop with an initial lump sum of £500 or so. Maybe you can make regular contributions through your working life. Perhaps you could set up a monthly payment into your Stocks and Shares ISA when you start earning at work.To begin with, I’d think about allocating my money into low-cost tracker funds within the Stocks and Share ISA wrapper. If you select the accumulation version of the fund (rather than the income version) it will automatically roll the dividends back in for you and set you on the path to compounding. I’d keep it simple, to begin with, and consider trackers that follow the FTSE 100, FTSE 250, and the US S&P 500 indexes. Maybe later you could diversify into investment trusts and shares of individual companies. Many investors do that to secure even greater returns from the stock market. Good luck on your investment journey!

The other Englishman leaving Toulon

first_imgBright lights: Walsh with Sonny Bill WilliamsFor Walsh the ‘tour’ will be his last opportunity to spend time with Toulon’s ‘galacticos’, the breathtaking array of talent assembled by the club over the last five years. “We don’t have any show ponies here,” says Walsh. “Everyone’s prepared to be a grinder. The calibre of player now is better than when I first arrived in 2009.”Walsh – and this is not a man given to hyperbole – feels privileged to have spent five years in the company of some of the world’s top players. “I’ve worked in rugby league but at Toulon I’ve come across the toughest blokes I’ve ever seen, “ he says. “Players like Bakkies Botha, Jonny Wilkinson and Carl Hayman are unbelievable. They rock up to games, and their bodies may be in bits, but they’re so tough mentally. And it’s the mind that controls the body.”One man who won’t be seen in either Cardiff or Paris is Andrew Sheridan. The Toulon prop is still recovering from a neck operation – unsure at this stage if he’ll be able to resume his career – but Walsh says that hasn’t stopped him showing off in the gym. “Sheridan” replies Walsh emphatically, when asked who can lift the most weights in the club. “He’s squatting 240kgs and doing full-range dips with 65 kgs [of weight on his back].” Sheridan is also showing a fair turn of pace in one of Walsh’s favourite challenges, the five minute run, posting a distance of 1400 metres before the clock runs down.The club record for the five minute run belongs to Wilkinson, who scampered 1600 metres last season. “He’s an exceptional endurance athlete in his own right,” says Walsh of Wilkinson.” One of those players who doesn’t become a coward when he’s tired. He thrives on the challenge of fatigue.”Walsh reckons Wilkinson has got the timing of his retirement spot on, even though he could still put most players ten years his junior to shame in the gym. “He’s creaking a little bit now, so it probably is time to go,” says Walsh. “I’ve always said to players, ‘it’s better to go out on top, then hang on too long’. Jonny is going out at the top.” Englishman in Toulon: Steve Walsh has been looking after Toulon’s conditioning since 2009 There is another Englishman who’s time at Toulon is drawing to a close. Like Jonny Wilkinson, Steve Walsh arrived on the Cote d’Azur in 2009, and like the soon-to-be retired fly-half, he’s enjoyed a fruitful five years transforming Toulon into arguably Europe’s most dominant team.Walsh is Toulon’s highly-respected head of athletic performance, a straight-talking Lancastrian whose innovation and energy were seen first in rugby league with Wigan and Leeds Rhinos, and then at Sale Sharks. When Walsh was headhunted by Philippe Saint-Andre in 2009 – then the director of rugby at Toulon – Walsh was given carte blanche to design the gym he wanted installed at the club’s training ground. What Walsh had constructed was light years ahead of other French clubs’ fitness facilities. There was the usual paraphernalia of free weights and cardiovascular machines, but there was also a five-lane 30m running track of double thickness for plyometrics, four six-metre ropes hanging from the ceiling and two ominous-looking contraptions for hamstrings and gluteals, their design modelled on machines used in the training of East European gymnasts.Hugs: Walsh and Jonny embraceWalsh is off to London Irish next season, to hopefully help turnaround the fortunes of the struggling Premiership club, but before then he must nurse the Toulon squad through a daunting end to the season. Last Friday the reigning European champions muscled their way past Racing Metro in the semi-final of the Top 14; it wasn’t pretty but it was physical and it was also in Lille, 1000km north of Toulon.Next on the itinerary is a trip to Cardiff, to defend their Heineken Cup crown against Saracens on Saturday, and then seven days later it’s off to Paris to face Castres in a re-run of last year’s Top 14 final.So much travelling, so little time for recuperation, Walsh’s savoir-faire is certainly being tested in what time he has left at Toulon.Last weekend was one of rest for Toulon before the players reconvened on Monday for what Walsh describes as a “low-key” weights session. That was also the order of the day on Tuesday and Wednesday will be a day off – as it always is for the players – before the squad flies to Cardiff on Thursday after a short session in the morning.Win or lose in Cardiff, Toulon will remain in Wales until Tuesday before heading to Paris to start their preparations for the Top 14 final, a title they last won in 1992. “I’ve arranged with Adam Beard, Wales’ Head of Physical Performance, to use their Cryotherapy chamber,” explains Walsh. The deep freeze treatment, which speeds up recovery by flushing lactic acid out of the system, is one of the few changes made by Walsh to the club’s normal routine. “I’ve pretty much kept everything in place so the players feel comfortable with the regime…the expression I use is ‘know your cattle’ and I know where to make the little improvements. For those players who have played at the highest level, who are in their 30s and are still world class, they know what it’s about and what works for them.”In effect, Toulon go on tour when they fly north to Cardiff on Thursday. The players will be together until Sunday June 1st when, if all goes according to plan, they will return to Toulon carrying two trophies, a feat only achieved by one other French club, Toulouse in 1996. So is Walsh, though in his case he’s relocating and not retiring – and he’s taking his stopwatch with him. Bon courage, London Irish.Find out what is in the latest edition of Rugby World here.

Brentwood Residence / Belzberg Architects

first_img “COPY” Photographs:  Art Gray PhotographyText description provided by the architects. The Brentwood Residence is located on a large picturesque lot in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Because the lot did not offer any immediate views from the buildable area of the property, the structures that comprise the project were designed to engage each other while focusing attention on the built and natural landscape within. Save this picture!© Art Gray PhotographyRecommended ProductsDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesThe lot features a large California Oak tree on the rear half of the site which serves as the focal point of the formal procession through the project. To counteract the formal setup of the site plan the spatial organization has been setup to challenge the established axis without eroding it. To achieve this, pathways have been intentionally designed to dissolve and reappear along the route. The line clearly divides the formal living area of the main house from the informal public spaces but it is counteracted by the complex interlocking geometry and asymmetrical volumes that make up the exterior.

Talking lamp posts to test Limerick dog owners

first_imgNewsLocal NewsTalking lamp posts to test Limerick dog ownersBy Bernie English – August 4, 2017 1375 Heartbroken publicans call time on their Covid lockdown Facebook Unstoppable Sean shows that all things are possible Print Limerick centre needed to tackle environmental issues Twitter TAGSCommunitydog ownersEnvironmentlimerick live 95 fmlitterlocal newsPets Dog poo clean-upTalking lamp posts to test Limerick dog owners.THE NEXT time a Limerick dog cocks a leg to a lamp-post, their owners may be surprised when the lamp-post talks back. It’s all part of a campaign by the City and County Council to persuade pet owners to clean up after their dogs. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The new campaign, involving talking ‘lamp posts’ and teaming up with Limerick’s Live 95FM’s Street Boy is part of Limerick City and County Council’s ongoing ‘Any Bag – Any Bin’ campaign to combat dog litter.  After its launch in Newcastlewest, the campaign is scheduled to move to Askeaton, Limerick City and Kilmallock this week.Dog owner are being asked to always clean up, remind relations, neighbours and friends to do the same, to take multiple bags on walks and to use any bag or public bin, use their own bin or to flush the poo down the loo. In addition to the joint campaign, other initiatives include local radio adverts and Park Rangers and Environment Inspectors/Litter Wardens handing out dog litter bags.Local authority Environment Awareness Officer Sinead McDonnell said that Minister Denis Naughten summed it up when he said that if your dog fouled in your own home, you’d clean it up immediately. “The same should apply to our streets.  Yet the amount of people who don’t take this level of care is disappointing. We see it in on streets, parks, river bank walks and it’s unacceptable”.   “Dog poo contains bacteria which can be dangerous and is a serious hazard to young children and wheelchair users among others,” she explained.Dog fouling is an offence under the Litter Act and dog owners who fail to clean up after their pet can face an on-the-spot fine of €150 or a court fine up to a maximum of €3,000 for each offence.Read similar stories in the Limerick Post Local News section.
