L. Randall Wray, Flavia Dantas, Scott Fullwiler, Pavlina R. Tcherneva and Stephanie A. Kelton

Wray, Dantas, Fullwiler, Tcherneva and Kelton focus on guaranteed jobs through a public service employment programme for the United States, since generating good quality employment is necessary for economic recovery, redistribution and the future social sustainability of the country’s growth trajectory. The authors remind us that, in both developed and developing economies, a high level of employment is clearly one of the most important ways of mitigating inequality and alleviating poverty, given that public service employment raises wage incomes, boosts aggregate demand and counters deflationary pressures. In addition, decent work, which has social, civic and creative implications, is an essential feature of an inclusive society.
