Global Financial & Economic Crisis: Global Unemployment
Andrew Rose, Bradford DeLong, David Card & John Quigley
Description: Despite recent upticks in the economy, the U.S. and worldwide employment picture remains bleak. Are we facing a “jobless recovery?” Did the international economic collapse in 2008-09 alter the labor market permanently? UC Berkeley scholars answer these questions, explore the role of international organizations such as the G20 in addressing them, and offer proposals to prevent protectionism and promote a global solution. Panelist include: John Quigley (Dept. of Economics), Brad DeLong (Dept. of Economics), David Card (Dept. of Economics) and Andrew Rose (Haas School of Business).
