Despite recent upticks in the economy, the U.S. and worldwide employment picture continues to be bleak. Are we facing a “jobless recovery?” Did the international economic collapse in 2008-09 alter the labor market permanently? What employment patterns and prospects should we expect as global markets and economies recover? UC Berkeley scholars answered these questions, explored the role of international organizations such as the G20 in addressing them, and offered proposals to prevent protectionism and promote a global solution.
