Job Reallocation and Unemployment in Equilibrium

Job reallocation in the U.S.--the sum of job creation and job destruction across employers--has been declining over several decades.

What Happened to Foreign Direct Investment in the United States?

This note demonstrates that the slowdown in FDIUS can be explained by two special factors: 1) a handful of corporate restructurings that are purely tax- and regulation-driven and affect the equity portion of direct investment flows, and 2) a reversal in intercompany debt flows that are often the result of corporate tax planning.
