Europe paper in New York Times

The "Off the Charts" column in the business section of today's New York Times features a recent paper [PDF] that Dean Baker and I wrote for CEPR.

The paper, called "Old Europe Goes to Work: Rising Employment Rates in the European Union", uses published data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to show that during the 2000s, Europe has been closing its long-standing employment gap with respect to the United States.

The NYT article includes a pretty graph.

Brother's Blog

Album cover: Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A'Changin'

My brother has launched his own blog, Restless Farewell. In keeping with family tradition, he hasn't been a daily blogger. But, he has broken with at least my practice and writes well and on an interesting range of topics.

Why "Restless Farewell"? Well, I'm guessing that it is a clever reference to both his now not-so-recent move to the south of France and Bob Dylan's song of the same name. You can read the lyrics here.
