Critical Review 12 (3):253-264 (1998)
|Abstract||Abstract De Long's criticisms of our explanation of unemployment patterns in the United States are empirically false. His assertion that we have the direction of causation reversed collapses in light of the lag between artificially high wages and unemployment. Nor are his claims about the nature of cyclical movements in productivity and real wages consistent with the data. Finally, his contention that the model we present does not work in the post?World War II era is, at best, misleading. The evidence shows with remarkable consistency that government attempts to prop up wages have caused twentieth?century increases in U.S. employment.|
