Fiscal policy and the youth labour market

Monique Ebell and Shane O'Higgins

ILO Working Papers from International Labour Organization

Abstract: The analysis seeks to evaluate the potential that expansionary fiscal policy can have – and under which conditions – to ameliorate, and restrictive fiscal policy to worsen, conditions in youth labour markets. Through a panel econometric model applied to European countries, the analysis finds that a fully countercyclical fiscal policy is an instrument well-suited to ameliorating youth unemployment.
