    Some European countries that have been models of employment stability and low unemployment since the Second World War now find themselves with unemployment rates in excess of 10%. In contrast, the main concern of the United States, with its unemployment rate less than 5%, is the possibility of an overheated labour market and the resurgence of inflation. What has happened to create such a dramatic reversal of fortunes? Des pays européens, qui étaient depuis la Deuxième Guerre des modèles de stabilité de l’emploi et de taux de chômage très faibles, se retrouvent maintenant avec des taux de chômage excédant les 10 %. Aux États-Unis, par contre, la grande préoccupation, avec un taux de chômage légèrement inférieur à 5%, c’est la possibilité de surchauffe du marché du travail et la relance de l’inflation. Que s’est-il donc passé pour que l’on ait un renversement aussi dramatique de la situation?
