Fiscal Cost-Benefit Analyses for Temporary Extra Jobs and Short-Term Training Programs

  • Thomas Walter
Part of the ZEW Economic Studies book series (ZEW, volume 46)


In this chapter, I continue the evaluation of Temporary Extra Jobs and shortterm training programs begun in chapter 5 by examining their efficiency. Programs can be recommended for use only if they are shown to be efficient as well as effective. In this chapter, I define efficiency as a state in which program benefits outweigh program costs.
