On the Dynamics of Unemployment in a Developing Economy: Colombia

Publicado en

  • Applied Economics Letters


  • This paper estimates an asymmetric error correction model to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the Colombian unemployment rate. It is found that wages above their long-run equilibrium level do increase unemployment, but wages below this level do not reduce it. This finding provides evidence of the existence of hysteresis in the Colombian unemployment rate.
