Unemployment in Western Europe and the United States: A Problem of Demand, Structure, or Measurement?
Haveman, Robert H.
American Economic Review, v68 n2 p44-50 1978
The main thesis of this paper is that measured unemployment bears a different relationship to real excess labor supply in the 1970s than it did in the 1960s. This thesis is used to explain the increase in measured unemployment in the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. (Author/EB)
