    Unemployment The unemployment report is released periodically and it contained a big surprise for many economists in 1996. Over the past months the reports showed the economy doing quite well. This economy has been doing so well that some economists were worried about reaching full employment rather quickly. Although the jobless would love that to happen, full employment would lead to high inflation and destruction of the economy. The consensus on Wall Street was that the Fed would have to rais...

    ECON 240 Assignment 1 The full-employment rate is an arbitrary level of employment that takes into account frictional and structural unemployment. It is used to calculate equilibrium in the changing labor market. It is difficult to calculate the full-employment rate. Economists first find the natural rate of unemployment; in so many words means that those members of the labor force that really want a job have one. If there is an agreed natural unemployment rate of 5% and the unemployment rate is...

    Canada's Unemployment Rate For decades prior to the 1981-82 recession, the national unemployment rates of Canada and the United States had been nearly identical. Since then, a persistent 'unemployment rate gap' has emerged. Throughout most of the 1980 s, Canada's unemployment rate has consistently been about 2 percentage points higher than in the United States. The gap developed in spite of very similar economic performances across the two countries: the growth rate of real per capita incomes ha...

  • Conflicting Goals In Economic Growth
    909 words
    Conflicting Goals in Economic Growth Goals of monetary policy are to 'promote maximum employment, inflation (stabilizing prices), and economic growth.' If economists believe it's possible to achieve all the goals at once, the goals are inconsistent. There are limitations to monetary policy. The term 'maximum employment' means that we should try to hold the unemployment rate as low as possible without pushing it below what economists call the natural rate or the full- employment rate. Pushing une...

    Unemployment has been a problem throughout the United States since the beginning of our economic structure. In the most obvious sense, unemployment means 'being without a job.' The term unemployment is one description of the economic condition of a society at any given time. Low unemployment means the majority of the labor force is involved in, or looking for steady work. On the other hand, high unemployment is an indication of an economy in recession, or even worse. This implies that a sizable ...

    With a decade of falling unemployment behind us, memories fade as to what actually happens during recessions. Those who have been working for a decade or less have never experienced a recession. It hurts. Forty years later, I can still remember being fired at age 22 from a summer job in a copper smelter when the demand for copper turned down. It was not a serious blow economically, but I can recall every detail. While there was no reason to be embarrassed, I was ashamed to tell my parents that ...
