Abstract/Index

We use a panel of 20 OECD countries over a 30-year period to estimate the implications ofinternational capital mobility for unemployment. We find that the increase in capital flowssince the mid1980s has contributed to an amplification of the impulse response ofunemployment to country-specific shocks and to a fall in the persistence of unemployment inresponse to the same shocks.
