Long Term Unemployment

This is an excellent new paper from the OECD on the crisis of sustained, high long-term unemployment.  Previous deep downturns were characterised by a straightforward pattern of joblessness: lots in, then lots out. This time around lots went in, and inflow to unemployment then returned to (near) normal levels. But almost no one is getting out.
