Rural Policies And Employment: Transatlantic Experiences, Hardback Book


A unique title comparing rural policies and employment in the two most developed parts of the world - the EU and USA.

While both regions are concerned for their vast rural areas, each adopts a strikingly different approach to create and maintain employment there, making rural space attractive to businesses and residents.This book focuses on a major issue of socioeconomic and policy concern, i.e. whether jobs and incomes can be protected or created in rural areas, where often agriculture no longer provides a large and secure basis for employment.

Within a 'paired' chapter structure covering both the European Union and the United States of America, it deals with several themes of interest including farm policies, labor entry and exit, and rural and household enterprise diversification.

Specific 'special studies' also analyze recent developments within countries or regions.
