The paper analyzes the wage-employment effects of replacing unemployment benefits by negative income taxes. It first surveys the major equity and efficiency effects of unemployment benefits versus negative income taxes, and summarizes the salient features of many European unemployment benefit systems in this light. Second, it presents a simple theoretical model that focuses on the relative wage-employment effects of unemployment benefits versus negative income taxes. Finally, it provides some empirical groundwork for assessing this relative effect

This paper studies the impact of unemployment benefits on unemployment duration for East Germany using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel. It concentrates on exit from unemployment into employment. Estimation results of a discrete-time hazard rate model imply that moderate cuts in the replacement rate raise the hazards by little. The effect of the replacement rate on the hazards becomes weaker the longer people are unemployed. The threat of periods of benefit sanction could explain this. The hazards are not generally declining in time until exhausting unemployment insurance (UI) benefits, but rise just prior to exhausting UI. -- Unemployment duration ; hazard rate ; unemployment benefit ; East Germany

As part of the nations unemployment insurance (UI) system, overseen by DOL, states provide benefits to eligible unemployed workers, with additional weeks of benefits sometimes provided by the federal government in times of economic stress. Since the 1960s, states have had maximum UI benefit durations of 26 weeks or longer. However, since 2011, nine states have reduced their maximum benefit durations. This book examines the circumstances in which states reduced the maximum duration of UI benefits; the implications of these reductions for individuals; the effects on federal UI costs; and their broader economic effects. Furthermore, the book analyses recent changes to state Unemployment Compensation (UC) programs.

"Unemployment insurance programs balance the benefits of consumption smoothing for unemployed workers against the disincentive effects of unemployment benefits. Such a balancing of benefits and costs is likely sensitive to the cyclical state of the economy, and hence the generosity of benefits should also respond to the cyclical state of the economy. The nature of such responses in an optimal unemployment insurance (UI) program is analyzed in a simple model. The results suggest that an optimal UI program would increase the initial level of benefits and probably extend higher benefits over time in response to a recessionary shock. A simple extension of benefits, such as exists automatically in the system in the United States, provides both poorer insurance and poorer incentives than the optimal program, and does so at a higher cost. Moreover, the current UI system in the U.S. provides a substantially higher level of welfare to workers who lose jobs during tight labor markets"--Federal Reserve Board web site

The phenomenon of unemployment benefits is often grossly misunderstood. Unemployment benefits provide the recipient with far more income then he otherwise would earn by working a real private sector job based on voluntary demand. Real private sector job based on voluntary demand are often highly time consuming, debilitating, dead end, minimum wage, dispiriting, unfulfilling, harrowing, distressful, brutally wretched jobs that drains almost all of the individual's time and that does not pay anything close to even 1/4 of a subsistence wage. Collecting unemployment benefits allows the recipient to indulge in living the high life. The amount granted in unemployment benefits to the recipient varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. An unemployed person in Massachusetts for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $1,234 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks if they have dependents. On other hand, an unemployed person in Massachusetts for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $823 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks if they have no dependents. An unemployed person in Washington for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $790 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks if they have no dependents. An unemployed person in Minnesota for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $740 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks if they have no dependents. The amount of money that recipients who refuse to work in any capacity are able to receive per week in unemployment benefits is exorbitant. Unemployment benefits are substantial even to the extend that you can easily receive well over $100 per day by not working in any capacity. When an unemployed person in Massachusetts for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $1,234 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks if they have dependents, they are effectively receiving $176 per day by by not working in any capacity. When an unemployed person without dependents in Massachusetts for instance who meets the criterion to receive unemployment benefits can receive $823 in unemployment benefits per week for at least twenty six weeks, they are effectively receiving $117 per day by by not working in any capacity. Many people who collect unemployment benefits refuse to work in any capacity. The people who collect unemployment benefits are able to indulge in reaping the utmost highest standard of living since they do not have to work in any capacity for their needs and wants to be met. Recipients of unemployment benefits often refuse to work in any capacity, never worked a real private sector job based on voluntary demand, and are inapt to return to the workforce in the unlikely event that they worked a real private sector job based on voluntary demand and subsequently started collecting unemployment benefits.
