How can economic policy affect unemployment?

Why are so many people unemployed at the same time that there are a large number of job openings? How can economic policy affect unemployment? This year's Nobel Prize Laureates in Economy - Peter A. Diamond, Dale T. Mortensen and Christopher A. Pissarides - have developed a theory which can be used to answer these questions.

Unemployment and inflation

- The Estonian economy recorded growth for the fourth consecutive quarter, which has helped stabilise the labor market and restore the demand for labor, and the commodity price rise has no permanent effect on inflation, said Estonia's Central Bank - Eesti Pank in an autumn statement.

Tax cuts and budget surplus

Estonia's Reform Party wants to lower unemployment insurance and income taxes, establish a ceiling for the social tax and abolish the fringe-benefits tax on job-related training.
