Working Credit Works

When I was an economics professor at the Australian National University, I wrote an evaluation with Roger Wilkins of the ‘Working Credit’ program, which allows people who are long-term unemployed to get some earnings without losing any of their income support.

We found that the program was surprisingly effective, given how little it costs. Our results are published in the latest issue of Fiscal Studies, and were written up in The Weekend Australian by Patricia Karvelas.
