Job Creation

Job Creation

The process by which the number of jobs in an economy increases. Job creation often refers to government policies intended to reduce unemployment. Job creation programs may take a variety of forms. For example, a government may lower taxes and reduce regulation to make hiring less expensive. On the other hand, a government may hire workers itself, for example, to build a road. See also: New Deal, Reaganomics.
