The Conference Board® Labor Markets in Review™: Vol. 2, No. 1

The U.S. economy has held steady in recent months, as household and business spending was stronger than expected. However, there are significant risks moving into 2012.

This edition of Labor Markets in Review features an especially large section on Europe. While a collapse of the Euro Zone is expected to be averted, the risk of a longer lasting recession remains highly elevated. The recession will lead to a more rapid rise in the unemployment rate, and compensation growth is likely to slow down even further.

This issue will give specific insight as to the direction of the labor market in the U.S. and in Europe especially given projected economic conditions.
