Has structural change contributed to a jobless recovery?

Erica Groshen () and Simon Potter ()

Current Issues in Economics and Finance, 2003, issue aug

Abstract: The current recovery has seen steady growth in output but no corresponding rise in employment. A look at layoff trends and industry job gains and losses in 2001-03 suggests that structural change - the permanent relocation of workers from some industries to others - may help explain the stalled growth in jobs.
