Hysteresis vs. natural rate of unemployment in Brazil and Chile

Fábio Gomes and Cleomar Gomes da Silva

Applied Economics Letters, 2007, vol. 15, issue 1, 53-56

Abstract: This article examines the hysteresis hypothesis in the unemployment rates of Brazil and Chile using an LM unit root test with two endogenous breaks. The phenomenon is confirmed for both countries. However, the hysteresis hypothesis is able to account for only a small part of the unemployment evolution.
