    A Macroeconomic Approach to Optimal Unemployment Insurance: Applications † By Camille Landais, Pascal Michaillat, and Emmanuel Saez* In the United States, unemployment insurance (UI) is more generous when unemployment is high. This paper examines whether this pol-icy is desirable. The optimal UI replacement rate is the Baily-ChettyFile Size: KB.

    This paper analyzes optimal unemployment insurance over the business cycle in a search model in which unemployment stems from matching frictions (in booms) and job rationing (in recessions).

    This paper extends earlier research on optimal unemployment insurance (UI) by developing an equilibrium search model that encompasses simultaneously several theoretical and institutional features that have been treated one-by-one (or not at all) in previous discussions of optimal UI. In particular, the model we develop allows us to determine the optimal potential duration of UI benefits as Cited by: 3.   There is no such thing as a free lunch. Congress wants to help the unemployed, but extending the duration of unemployment insurance (UI) .

The gains are par- ticularly large (about 30 percent) for an agent with no wealth or other source of income and with no access to borrowing.

In contrast, the gains from shifting to the optimal scheme with no taxation (asFile Size: KB. Third, the optimal replacement rate rises as the potential duration of benefits is increasingly limited, reaching 1 when the potential duration of benefits is limited to 32 weeks. Previous article in issueCited by: Under conservative assumptions on exogenously specified parameters, the results imply that more than 70% of the e ffect of UI on unemployment durations comes through an income e ffect.

The large income ef- fect implies that γ≈ for the unemployed and results in an optimal UI replacement rate of approximately 50%.Cited by: Downloadable. This paper analyzes optimal unemployment insurance over the business cycle in a search model in which unemployment stems from matching frictions (in booms) and job rationing (in recessions).

Job rationing during recessions introduces two novel effects ignored in previous studies of optimal unemployment insurance.

First, job-search efforts have little effect on aggregate. optimal unemployment insurance pean Community countries, public expenditures on unemployment insurance averaged around 2 percent of gross national product for the second half of the s, ranging from a low percent for Luxembourg to a high percent for the Netherlands (Melguizo and Lopez ).

For a given UI, the economy is efficient if tightness satisfies a generalized Hosios condition, slack if tightness is too low, and tight if tightness is too high. The optimal UI formula is the sum of the standard Baily-Chetty term, which. We develop a theory of optimal unemployment insurance (UI) that accounts for workers’ job-search behavior and firms’ hiring behavior.

The optimal replacement rate of UI is the conventional. Optimal Unemployment Insurance by Andreas Pollak,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Journal of Political Economy (2): This increase in the steady-state unemployment rate of u ≈ % can be decomposed into an outflow effect u o ≈ %, an inflow effect of u i ≈ % and an interaction effect u io ≈ %.

While the outflow effect is clearly the dominant one, it accounts for “only” about 53 percent of the overall increase in : Josef Zweimüller. Large income effects imply higher risk aversion and therefore generate a higher optimal benefit rate, as one would expect given that income effects are non-distortionary.

However, conditional on the value of c and the other three primary inputs, the magnitudes of the income effect is irrelevant. This point reveals an important tradeoff in evaluating policies using the formula proposed here.

By providing unemployment insurance, the government reduces the opportunity cost of unemployment. This reduces search effort and increases both the length of unemployment spells and the equilibrium rate of unemployment. In designing an optimal U1 program, the positive and negative effects of U1 must be weighed against one another.

optimal unemployment insurance, exemplified by Cahuc and Lehmann (), Fredriksson and Holmlund (), Coles and Masters (), and Lehmann and van der Linden (). The novelty of our analysis is to determine how unemployment insurance should optimally respond to business cycle conditions, rather than analyzing optimal policy in steady by: optimal unemployment insurance with asymmetric information, but do not model labor market search.

Costain (), Valdivia (), and Gomes et al. () examine labor market behavior in a quantitative general equilibrium framework, but do not look at the productivity gains from unemployment insurance. This paper considers the design of an optimal unemployment insurance system. The problem is modeled as a repeated principalagent problem involving a risk‐averse agent‐the unemployed worker‐and a risk‐neutral principal, which cannot monitor the agent's search effort.

The optimal long‐term contract subject to the associated incentive constraints is by: The national debate over unemployment insurance has focused on a far longer extension, however, to nearly two years. Extrapolating the upper bounds of their estimates, the economists find that “extending benefits from 26 weeks to 99 weeks increased the unemployment rate by at most percentage point.”.One argument against unemployment insurance is that: A) unemployment insurance limits the effects of a recession.

B) unemployment insurance is only available during recessions. C) unemployment insurance creates an indirect incentive that can make it less attractive for workers to stay unemployed.

D) unemployment insurance can be extended by the.
