Week 5 Case Study: Unemployment

Week 5 Case Study: Unemployment 6 pages


People need income in order to consume, and consumption leads to production, and

production leads to higher demand for labor (employment), so unemployment is a

crucial macroeconomic issue that confronts all modern economies. A lower

unemployment rate, however, is not the end of the problem. The type of employment

and the price of labor (wages) have to be sufficient for consumption (which is the major

component of GDP) for the economy to be healthy. If wages are low or if the prices in

the economy are high, consumption would be low and thus, production and demand for

labor would be low as well. So high unemployment rate, high part-time employment rate

for economic reasons, and low wages could have negative effects on economic growth.
