The Jobs Crisis: Causes, Cures, Constraints

Best Western Hotel Steglitz International
Albrechtstr. 2
12165 Berlin

More than five years after the beginning of the financial crisis in the United States, the world economy is still highly fragile. In particular, many countries are facing a severe jobs crisis. This is especially true for the euro area, which fell back into recession in 2012 and where unemployment has reached unprecedented levels. The conference, “The Jobs Crisis: Causes, Cures, Constraints,” will look at where new and decent jobs are to come from? CEPR Co-director Dean Baker will take part in a plenary session on macroeconomic policies, labor market institutions and good jobs. For more information, visit the conference website.
