Abstract: This thesis studies the effect of generosity of unemployment insurance on economic growth. More
generous unemployment insurance is argued to cause an increase in unemployment on the one hand
and better job match quality on the other. Our model shows that in the developed countries, there
may be some level of unemployment insurance which ensures that the productivity gain offsets the
loss due to higher unemployment. On the contrary, in the developing countries, any level of
unemployment insurance was revealed to harm economic growth. Moreover, we present strong
evidence in favour of a positive effect of unemployment insurance on the aggregate productivity
growth.
