The booklet comes up with a few policy-relevant findings. Macroeconomic guidelines, rather inflation concentrating on within the 2000-2007 interval, haven't been conducive to employment iteration. the belief that unemployment is an acceptable indicator of labour industry functionality and, extra importantly, that it truly is heavily aligned with poverty, is proven to be erroneous. Sustained actual salary progress within the twenty-year interval sooner than the 1997 monetary trouble is contrasted with the shortcoming of development considering the fact that then, a interval in a different way of first rate monetary progress by way of overseas criteria. the anticipated antagonistic results of sweeping labour marketplace laws in 2000-2007 on correctly measured employment, unemployment and labour expenditures didn't materialize, in general due to low compliance. it appears a restrictive macroeconomic framework has been extra constraining for employment progress than the perceived labour marketplace tension through the post-crisis interval. The ebook concludes with an assessment of numerous ‘reactive’ and ‘proactive’ labour industry guidelines. even though those are complementary, coverage makers in Indonesia have most likely placed an excessive amount of emphasis on reactive guidelines such minimal salary and severance pay, and never sufficient on proactive rules geared toward growing an adaptable and expert workforce.
