How often have wage-price spirals occurred in the past, and what has happened in their aftermath? This column investigates this by creating a database of past wage-price spiral episodes among a wide set of advanced economies going back to the 1960s. Surprisingly, only a small minority of such episodes were followed by further sustained acceleration in wages and prices. The authors argue that an acceleration of nominal wages is not necessarily a sign that a wage-price spiral is taking hold.
In the overlapping global emergencies of the pandemic, climate change and geopolitical confronta- tions, supply shocks have become frequent and inflation has returned. This raises the question how sector-specific shocks are related to overall price stability. This paper simulates price shocks in an input-output model to identify sectors which present systemic vulnerabilities for monetary stability in the US. We call these prices systemically significant. We find that in our simulations the pre-pandemic average price volatilities and the price shocks in the COVID-19 and Ukraine war inflation yield an almost identical set of systemically significant prices. The sectors with system- ically significant prices fall into three groups: energy, basic production inputs other than energy, basic necessities, and commercial and financial infrastructure. Specifically, they are “Petroleum and coal products”, “Oil and gas extraction”, “Utilities”, “Chemical products”, “Farms”, “Food and beverage and tobacco products”, “Housing”, and “Wholesale trade”. We argue that in times of overlapping emergencies, economic stabilization needs to go beyond monetary policy and requires institutions and policies that can target these systemically significant sectors.
Workers who lose their job are often affected financially for several years. One way to cope with job loss is to go back to school before returning to the labour market. This study documents the degree to which displaced workers experienced relatively high earnings growth when they used various educational strategies following job loss.
