In the short run, the relationship between economic growth and the unemployment rate may be a loose one. One reason that unemployment may not fall appreciably when economic growth first picks up is that some firms may have under-utilised labour. Laying off workers when times are bad and rehiring them as conditions improve has costs. In other words, firms may be able to increase their output by raising the productivity of the labor on hand, which yields a temporary boost in measured labour productivity above its longer-run rate of growth. This book examines the relationship between economic growth and the unemployment outlook to anticipate possible future developments. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
