Cyclical Unemployment, Structural Unemployment
Social Science Research Network
Whenever unemployment stays high for an extended period, it is common to see analyses, statements, and rebuttals about the extent to which the high unemployment is structural, not cyclical.

Also discussed is the concept of mismatch. JEL-Code: E600, E240, E320, J230.doi:10.2139/ssrn.2211351 fatcat:z45fm2wmsfcgvgqei4gxw4xgfu
