Variables observables et inobservables dans la théorie du taux de chômage d'équilibre. Une comparaison France/États-Unis

  • Éric Heyer
  • Frédéric Reynès
  • Henri Sterdyniak

This paper confronts, theoretically and empirically, two estimation methods for the equilibrium rate of unemployment. The introduction of observable variables into the tv-nairu approach and unobservable variables into the structural approach improves these two methods and makes them converge even though their diagnoses differ appreciably in the French case.
