Limited Re-Entry and Business Cycles

This paper builds a model of rm dynamics to study the consequences of "limited re-entry" for macroeconomic dynamics. Matched individual-level data from the Current Population Survey indicate that only 8% of unemployed chief executives, on average, find employment again as a chief executive after 12 months. Given the close link between entrepreneurs and chief executives, this suggests that it is very difficult for exiting entrepreneurs to "re-enter" in the future. The model, calibrated to match this observation, indicates that "limited re-entry" has made business cycles more volatile and persistent.
