The effects of the Great Recession on the U.S. labor market
Tuesday, October 18

Recessions are normally assumed to be short-run fluctuations of output around a long-run equilibrium path. But the large size and long duration of the Great Recession has raised questions about its possible long-run effects.  Moving beyond the short-run analysis of the current economic situation, this conference will investigate potential long-term impacts of both the 2007-08 financial crisis and the economic downturn that followed. What structural economic changes have occurred during the Great Recession, and what are their implications? Each session of the conference focuses on long-term (beyond the recovery) or even permanent effects of the economic crisis within a specific arena.

"Will the Federal Reserve Be Able to Serve as Lender of Last Resort in the Next Financial Crisis?"
Videos from the panel discussion on October 19, 2011 are now available.
