Systems Thinking View on the Situation of Unemployment in the USA

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The diploma thesis "Systems Thinking View on the Situation of Unemployment in the United States" was performed at the University of California San Diego at the Department of Sociology with advise of Prof. John Evans PhD in cooperation with the Institute of Industrial Engineering, Ergonomics and Business Economics with advise of O.Univ.Prof. Dipl.-Ing.

Systems thinking, an application of system theory, in this context, is seen as a tool that makes it possible to develop a model to generate this understanding. The thesis provides a brief overview of the United States Unemployment Insurance System and a systems thinking approach used for an interpretation of the current situation in the United States. The diploma thesis is seen as basic work for further research on the situation of unemployment in the [...]
