Unemployment, Slowly Declining Wages, and Depressed Investments: Does it Help to Devalue?
Institute of Economics, University of Aarhus.
1989 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

We consider an intertemporal small open economy with unemployment and depressed investments due to a high real wage. As the required wage adjustment takes time, we investigate whether a devaluation easens the adjustment process. Concerning employment, we find that it is possible to achieve a high level in the entire adjustment process, assuming that the adjustment is non-cyclical. In the cyclical case, the cumulative employment effect per unit of capital is positive. In any case, the employment gain is achieved at the cost of lower productivity. Finally, a cycle in the current account seems likely.
