This paper attempts to relate the recent discussion on jobless recovery, observed in the US economy since the 1990s, to the empirical studies on Okun's law, which postulates a specific empirical relationship between economic growth and the change in the rate of unemployment. Our general hypothesis is that if the Okun coefficient for the economy has weakened, it explains the jobless recovery.
