The Unemployment Crisis: Costs, Causes, Cures

  • Is the recent increase in unemployment cyclical or structural?
  • Is there is a link between inequality, over-borrowing and financial crises?

My article in The Globalist discusses these issues, among others. The article provides a summary of an October 22 workshop on “The Unemployment Crisis: Costs, Causes, Cures” held at the IMF; the PowerPoint presentations from the workshop are available here. And here’s a link to the final version of my IMF Staff Position Note on “The Human Cost of Unemployment: Assessing It, Reducing It” (with Mai Dao). Three links and I’m out.
