Yasin Saeed Noman, the secretary general of the Yemeni Socialist Party (YSP), as the recipience
of our annual award.
This paper examines patterns of recipience
of Youth Allowance over the past five years and, in doing so demonstrates the niggardliness of the award, and how difficult it is for students to survive financially without parental support.
The effect on labour supply reflects in part the decision to move from benefit recipience
to earnings from work (the participation decision) - with the replacement rate of unemployment benefits being crucial for the reservation wage of workers - and in part the decision to offer more hours of work (the hours decision).
