Macroeconomic Shocks and Firms' Labor Adjustment
Tor Eriksson ()
Finnish Economic Papers, 2013, vol. 26, issue 1, 25-35
This article discusses some recent research which aims at producing evidence on how firms adjust their employment in response to output shocks using micro-level data and with a particular focus on the relationship between worker and job flows. The evidence presented is mainly based on Danish data, but a brief discussion of cross-country differences and similarities in firmlevel labor adjustment is also provided. For Denmark, remarkable long-term stability in firms’ labor adjustment technologies is observed and the cross-country comparisons reveal striking similarities between countries with very diverse labor market institutions.
