Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Job Guarantee is the next big, common-sense idea for economic reform. Over years of dedicated work, Pavlina Tcherneva has developed and advanced the plan, and today it stands poised to complement the Green New Deal and Medicare for All as a fundamental pillar of the progressive agenda. Read about it here... and go out to help make it happen.”
James K. Galbraith, The University of Texas at Austin

“More than any other piece of public policy, the Job Guarantee can help us build a more equitable economy and just society. Pavlina Tcherneva has written the perfect primer for anyone interested in understanding why and how the Job Guarantee can do so much good.”
Ady Barkan, Activist and organizer and author of Eyes to the Wind

“Pavlina Tcherneva offers an eloquent and convincing argument for a public sector job guarantee as an economic shock absorber. Particularly valuable is her demonstration of how such a program can revitalise local communities. Beyond this, her book is an indispensable primer for advocates of a Green New Deal”.
Robert Skidelsky

Robert Skidelsky
 
“Tcherneva lays out the case for how we can raise the roof by lifting the floor, as we transition away from a failed and cruel economy based on an assumed percentage of unemployment. She demonstrates how a jobs guarantee can help address some of our biggest challenges, including bridging the gap to a Green New Deal and the critical conversion from a fossil-fuel economy to a sustainable future. Through her book we can see a world where everyone who wants to claim the dignity of work as their own has that right.”
Sara Nelson, International President, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO

5.0 out of 5 stars *MUST READ* Pavlina Tcherneva is the Job Guarantee Whisperer
By steven D. Grumbine on June 13, 2020
Rarely is such an important subject carried out into words so eloquently and easily understood fashion. Pavlina presents the current scenario we find ourselves in and take us through history and builds a strong case for the Job Guarantee.

There is no greater hedge against destitution for a society living in a monetary economy than a Job Guarantee and progressives must dig in, roll up their sleeves and read this amazing book. Once they consume it. Understand it... They will be empowered to make meaningful change.

Well done Dr Tcherneva. You are amazing and this book is a masterpiece.
