Based on matched employer-employee data from Norway, we analyze the effects of worker displacement in 1986-1987 on their children's earnings in 1999-2001. Using displacement of fathers to indicate an exogenous earnings shock we seek to identify whether family resources have a direct effect on children's economic outcome. Job losses appear to have a negative effect on earnings and employment of those affected, while we find no significant effects on earnings of the next generation.
