Blackwell Publishing Ltd
Blackwell Publishing Journal Backfiles 1879-2005
We observe in the literature of the past decade some innovative contributions identified a relation between economic growth and long run unemployment. This set of contributions is composed of very few elements, all characterized by a high degree of heterogeneity about their features and about their final results.In the first part of the survey we provide a classification of these early contributions. In the second part we explore some alternative formulations of the problem and we present a wider set of models displaying interesting features, able to promote further studies about the persistence of unemployment in a growing economy.
