Assessing the Impact of the Financial Crisis on Structural Unemployment in OECD Countries, Stéphanie Guichard and Elena Rusticelli = Évaluation de l'impact de la crise financière sur le chômage structurel dans les pays de l'OCDE / Stéphanie Guichard et Elena Rusticelli

Abstract
The global recession is likely to results in higher structural unemployment for some time in many OECD countries. This paper assesses how the shock to aggregate unemployment as a result of the economic crisis may be transmitted to structural unemployment through hysteresis effects that occur through the rise in long-term unemployment. The estimated increase in structural unemployment due to the crisis is estimated at ¾ percentage point in the OECD as a whole, but the paper highlights wide cross-country differences with the largest increases expected in those European countries where unemployment is increasing most and where institutional settings remain less favorable than elsewhere, notably Spain and Ireland
