Workers Are Underemployed Or Have Simply Given Up Trying To Find A Well Paying Job, How Wage Growth Has Not Returned To Prerecession Levels Despite Rosy Employment Indicators, And How General Prosperity Has Not Returned Since The Crash Of Standard Economic Measures Are Often Blind To These Forgotten Workers, Which Is Why Blanchflower Practices The Economics Of Walking Aboutseeing For Himself How Ordinary People Are Faring Under The Recovery, And Taking Seriously What They Say And Do Not Working Is His Candid Report On How The Young And The Less Skilled Are Among The Worst Casualties Of Underemployment, How Immigrants Are Taking The Blame, And How The Epidemic Of Unhappiness And Self Destruction Will Continue To Spread Unless We Deal With It Underemployment has not returned to re 2008 recession levels Real U.S weekly wages as of 2 19 were about 9% below those in 1973 for private sector and non supervisory personnel in 1982 84 dollars The fact that wages are not going up is indicative that full employment is yet a far away dream.Brexit is largely a reaction to the wave of immigrants especially Syrians , combined with the recent large influx into the labor market of Europeans formerly behind the Iron Curtain especially Poles after 2004.The BLS unemployment rate in 1 2009 was 7.8%, 4.6% in 12 16 before Trump The non response rate for questions about wages was 38% in 2018, 40% in 2008, and 23% in 1995 thus, that measure has become less reliable.The U.S labor market participation rate peaked at 67% in January 2000, now down to 63% To restore the unemployment rate to pre recession levels would require 7 million jobs.In 2014, 18 34 year olds were likely to be living at home than not, the first time in 140 years Average real annual wages changes in the U.S were 1.5% during 2000 07, 0.7% 2008 16.Real weekly U.S take home earnings production and non supervisory workers in 1982 84 dollars was less than 1972 levels 341.36 in 72, 311.80 in April 18, though up 8.4% since the beginning of 2008 when the Great Recession began. danny is smart and honest Was there ever a labour market in the Western world that was brimming with good jobs Not sure But the title here certainly smacks of a totally misplaced nostalgia for times we never had.Now, Professor Blanchflower s heart beats in the right place and the policy recommendations assaulting deprivation and enforced idleness in the USA and the UK are good clean Keynesian fare It s just a pity that they are crammed into the last few pages of an over long and often turgidly composed book DB knows his labour market theory and practice inside out but subjects his reader here to endless proofs, citations, footnotes, references to academic papers frequently his own , vox pops and plain old padding with the result that the text becomes molasses before your very eyes Do we really need to be told that one study of CEO behaviour found that there is no relation between golf handicap and corporate performance Had we all previously thought that there must be Trop de proof tue la proof, you might say.DB flaunts his preference for the economics of walking about It s hard to know exactly what this means but the suspicion grows that it has something to do with clever people sensing macro economic change merely by talking to taxi drivers or noticing that sales of laxative are possibly increasing Easy to conclude that there is the most dispiriting anti intellectualism at work here To my knowledge, no trends or forecasting agency encourages staff to depend on hunch or casual sniff There are good reasons for this the clients would sack them.As for DB s assault on the deficiencies of conventional macro economic practice macroeconomic theory has proved itself to be largely irrelevant and the earlessness of so many economists as the Great Recession began to howl well, it s all serviceable enough But we read it all once many years ago in Paul Ormerod s The Death of Economics and recently and colourfully in Kate Raworth s Doughnut Economics.Economics brings down a lot of sado masochism on itself these days and much of this is ultimately unhelpful Besides, if you are a university professor and a sometime Member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England, then is it really decorous to complain about the failure of elites to get economic policy right Perhaps not Pluck out the beam and all that Taking a huge verbal selfie of the man who really did get things right is not a good look.More, economic analysis is seriously evolving Why so little here about the anti growth movement, popular in so much of academic life now, and its potentially colossal impact on the chances for Keynesian expansionism So little about people replacement, courtesy of AI robotics big data, in retailing, financial services, security, manufacturing traditionally the big employing beasts of capitalism So little on how to fund social welfare programmes when if the taxable capacity of the state contracts So little on globalisation and its consequence for reflationary measures taken in any single state Lot of dogs not barking at the elephants in the room here.DB is right about one thing The human costs of post 2008 austerity have been too high, too unnecessarily high It s good that he raises a flag for all those that have been victimised by no fault of their own But it s an old flag and a tired one.
