Cyclic Economic Development and the Labor Market in Bulgaria 1990-2010 (cause-effect relations, realities and challenges)
The paper studies the relation between the economic cycle and the labor market development in different periods of the economic cycle in the years 1990-2010. The impacts of the cyclic economic development on the forming and developing of the labor market is traced through evaluations of the degree of balancing of the labor demand and supply, employment restructuring, labor force mobility and labor market flexibility. The paper analyzes also the impact of other internal and external factors on the development of the labor market in the different stages of the cycle. It draws conclusions on the connection between growth and employment in the different stages of the economic cycle, outlining the stronger dependence in the transition period and the weaker influence of the growth on the employment in the period of stabilization and growth. The paper states the significance of the stabilization for the labor force restructuring, for the development of the forms of employment and for increasing the labor force mobility. The increase of the labor market flexibility through developing its institutions and legal bases is considered in the context of an instrument for softening of the impact of the cyclic economic development on the labor market.
