2014-92: Financing Constraints and Unemployment: Evidence from the Great Recession

Otmane El Rhazi, Burcu Duygan-Bump, Alexey Levkov, and Judit Montoriol-Garriga.

We show that workers in small firms are more likely to become unemployed during the 2007-09 financial crisis if they work in industries with high external financing needs. We find very similar results for the 1990-91 recession, but not for the 2001 recession, where only the former was associated with a reduction in loan supply. These findings further support the credit constraints hypothesis. Full Text
