The relationship between productivity growth and unemployment has been debated since the birth of classical economics. Building on a previous study of Okun's Lawâ€”the relationship between output growth and unemployment, where productivity is assumed to be constantâ€”this SCEPA Policy Note discusses productivity changes and their effect on unemployment over the short and long run.
