  • Analyzing female labor force participation in Afghanistan: Panel data

    • Authors: Sardar Naeem HAKIMZAI
      Pages: 309 - 323
      Abstract: . In comparison to other countries, female labor force participation in Afghanistan is the lowest. Afghanistan currently has the lowest labor force participation rate in the world, at 16%. According to the 2015 UN Gender Inequality Index, women own only 5% of Afghan businesses. The aim of this paper is to examine female labor force participation in Afghanistan. This is the first study of women's labor force participation in Afghanistan. Data were obtained from a variety of official sources, including the Central and Statistical Organization of Afghanistan, the World Bank, the Ministry of Labor, and the Ministry of Women's Affairs. The dataset covers 20 provinces in the different time periods from 2016 to 2020. In a panel data approach, we used a fixed effects model and a generalized method of moments (GMM) to analyze the effect of minimum wage, female education, female age, mother age, household size, father's education level, and female labor skills (work experience) on female labor force participation. Our findings show that the minimum wage, female education, female age, father's education level, and female work skills (work experience) all have significant and positive effects on female labor force participation. However, the mother's age has no effect on women's labor-force participation. There is a strong, statistically significant, and negative relationship between household size and female labor force participation. These findings imply that the Afghan government should consider using minimum wages, education, working age, and work experience as policy tools to increase female labor force participation. Using a panel data approach, this study contributes to the literature in Afghanistan.Keywords. Female labor force; Household size; Education; Minimum wage; Labor market; Panel data, Afghanistan.JEL.

  • Disregard of the empirical; optimism of the will: The abandonment of good
           government in the covid-19 crisis

    • Authors: David CAMPBELL, Kevin DOWD
      Pages: 276 - 297
      Abstract: . We are grateful to the editors and the publishers of the book in which this chapter appears, for that manner of that appearance is unusual. Save for the correction of slips and what it is hoped are some minor stylistic improvements, this chapter has been left as it was when it was given what the authors thought was a shape ready for publication sometime in early 2021. The central thinking of the chapter had taken shape sometime in late 2020. The wish to publish a chapter which will, then, be three years out of date when it appears would anyway require explanation, but this is a fortiori the case with a chapter on a topic so quickly and dramatically shifting as the evaluation of the UK government’s response to the outbreak of Covid in early 2020. In essence, such significance as the chapter possesses is that it shows that, at the time that what is in the chapter called ‘inchoate communism’ was generating lockdown, an immensely superior alternative was perfectly possible, had the UK government taken what can, consistent with the title of this book, be called a ‘conservative’ approach to regulation.Keywords.
