The role of real wages, productivity and fiscal policy in Germany's Great Depression 1928-1937

We study the behavior of output, employment, consumption, and investment in Germany during the Great Depression of 1928-37. In this time period, real wages were countercyclical, and productivity and fiscal policy were procyclical.

Changes in productivity and fiscal policy were also important for the decline and recovery. Even ...

We conjecture that these sharp differences in export pricing behavior may be due to differences in the extent of overseas production by firms based in these countries. Pricing to market may be more important to firms ...
