The great recession and job loss spillovers: impact of tradable employment shocks on supporting services

Ha Nguyen () and Shawheen Rezaei

No 7543, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: This paper explores the spillover effects of job losses via input linkages during the Great Recession. Exploiting exogenous variation in tradable employment shocks across U.S. counties, the paper finds that job losses in the tradable sectors cause further job losses in local supporting services. The result is not due to reverse causation, construction job losses, or credit shortages. In addition, the paper finds that logistic supporting services are relatively more affected by local tradable job losses, while professional supporting services, such as information technology and management consulting, are more affected by the job losses in neighboring counties.
