Public Policy and Unemployment in Interwar France: An Empirical Approach. Series: Discussion paper series

Abstract: This paper introduces an empirical model of the French interwar labour marketthat is comparable to models developed for the British labour market for thisperiod, yet incorporates specific extensions in order to capture the peculiarities ofthe French case. The result is a model that can very accurately simulate themovement of unemployment in the 1920s and 1930s and this is used to run aseries of counterfactual simulations to estimate the labour market effects ofvarious public policies adopted at the time. Of particular note is the result that therepatriation drive of the early 1930s had no significant effect on the size offoreign labour force by 1936 and that the decision to remain on the Gold Standarduntil 1936 raised unemployment each year by more than primary policiesintroduced to combat unemployment - public works and repatriation of foreignworkers - reduced it.
