Section 2 presents a fully calibrated real business cycle model to show quantitatively the negative e®ects of technology shocks on employment and the positive e®ects of demand shocks on labor productivity. Section 3 deduces the relative contributions of technology shocks to business.

The neoclassical effects of permanent technology shocks on employment is re-investigated. Contrary to Jordi Gali's () assertion published in this Review, I show that standard neoclassical theory is.

Most of the results hold for a variety of model specifications and for the majority of G7 countries. The picture that emerges is hard to reconcile with a conventional real-business-cycle interpretation of business cycles. For a majority of countries the following results stand out: (a) technology shocks appear to induce a negative comovement between productivity and employment, counterbalanced by a positive comovement generated by demand shocks; (b) the impulse responses show a persistent decline in employment in response to a positive technology shock; and (c) measured productivity.

In Section IV, I examine the implications of the estimated decomposition regarding the role played by technology shocks as sources of postwar business. Business Cycle Phases. Business cycles are identified as having four distinct phases: expansion, peak, contraction, and trough.

An expansion is characterized by increasing employment, economic growth, and upward pressure on prices. A peak is the highest point of the business cycle, when the economy is producing at maximum allowable output, employment is at or above full employment.

Using data for the G7 countries, I estimate conditional correlations of employment and productivity, based on a decomposition of the two series into technology and non-technology components.

The technology shock cannot replicate basic business cycle facts observed in the data: it produces a low or negative correlation between employment and GDP, and a strong negative correlation between labour productivity and employment. Technology and non-technology Cited by: 2.

For a majority of countries the following results stand out: (a) technology shocks appear to induce a negative comovement between productivity and employment, counterbalanced by a positive.

In particular, the growth rate of the Solow residual is often taken to be indicative of the extent of technological progress. In the Real Business Cycle literature, the residual is commonly taken as the empirical counterpart to the exogenous technology shocks assumed to drive the fluctuations of the by: Abstract.

The neoclassical e®ects of permanent technology shocks on employment is re-investigated. Contrary to Jordi Gali's () assertion published in this Review, I show that standard neoclassical theory is fully capable of explaining the stylized fact that positive permanent technology shocks reduce employment.
