The International Labor Organization (ILO) has issued its *2012 World of Work Report*. Subtitled *Better Jobs for a Better Economy*, the 128 page study new study, according to the introduction, "examines the performance of different countries since the start of the global crisis through the prism of the quantity and quality of jobs".
The report addresses the following questions:
• To what extent has the slow recovery aggravated social conditions, including falling incomes, deepening poverty and worsening inequality? • Have countries gone too far, too fast with fiscal consolidation? How should they support recovery while meeting fiscal goals in the medium term? • What can be expected from recent labor market reforms? • How can investment be boosted so as to ensure a long-lasting recovery in both the economy and jobs? • What have been the barriers to implementing a more job-centered and equity-enhancing policy approach? Why has the business-as-usual scenario maintained its centrality despite the increasing risk of social unrest?
