Unemployment in the 1990s
J. Bradford DeLong
- The 1990s were an astonishingly good decade for the United States as far as its average level of unemployment was concerned.
- By 1997, the unemployment rate had fallen to levels that in the past had been associated with rapidly rising inflation; yet inflation remained quiescent.
- Good unemployment performance continued until the very end of 2000, when the recession of 2001 began.
