520    Measuring costs of labor as a portion of total production 
       costs has never before been treated so thoroughly or so 
       thoughtfully. Moreover, contrary to most recent labor 
       research, this book focuses on the demand side-the 
       employer's point of view-and the behavior studied is 
       employer behavior. An introductory essay by the editor 
       provides a useful guide to current thought in the analysis
       of labor cost. Other papers give new insights into 
       problems encountered in accounting for the nonwage 
       elements of labor compensation, the effect of pensions and
       other benefits, and the wage-measurement questions raised 
       by incomes policies. In addition, there is a wealth of 
       valuable new data on labor costs in the United States. 
       Labor economists, statisticians, econometric modelers, and
       advisers to government and industry will welcome this up-
       to-date and comprehensive treatment of the costs of
