Unemployment - Jobs Deficit/Growth

Topic Leader: Till von Wachter

Unemployment is the No. 1 economic problem facing the country today. Unless the rate of job growth can be accelerated, unemployment will remain at unacceptable levels for years to come.

This topic cluster focuses on the full range of questions needed to understand the causes and consequences of unemployment and the factors that influence job creation and growth. Options for modernizing the unemployment insurance system and related labor-market policies aimed at accelerating the pace of job growth figure prominently in the work of this research cluster.
