Labor markets in the global financial crisis

Mary Daly (), John Fernald (), Oscar Jorda () and Fernanda Nechio

FRBSF Economic Letter, 2013

Abstract: The impact of the global financial crisis on labor markets varied widely from country to country. In the United States, the unemployment rate nearly doubled from its pre-recession level. The rate rose much less in the United Kingdom and barely changed in Germany, despite larger declines in gross domestic product. Institutional and technological changes since the 1970s had previously made relationships between output and unemployment more homogeneous across countries. But the global financial crisis undid much of this convergence as countries adopted different labor market policies to adjust output.
