The procyclical behaviour of labour productivity per person reflects the fact that employment adjusts less than output over the cycle. This simple indicator is a commonly used measure. We consider a labour market populated by a continuum of firms indexed by ie[O, 1], of unitary total mass, and by a continuously divisible labour force whose size is also normal-ized to unity.

The marginal revenue product of labour at a firm i at time t is a function 1T(, *) of current employment, l,i, and of a business conditions index Ci. Downloadable (with restrictions). The puzzle of procyclical labor productivity occupies an important position in the debate over real business cycle theory.

Real business cycle proponents attribute it to procyclical technology shocks, opponents to 'labor hoarding'--retention during recessions of workers not needed for current production, thus downwardly biasing productivity measurements.

hoarding, Jon Fay and James Medoff offered a brief history of the emergence of the labor hoarding concept.

Underemployment has been studied from a variety of. Inrecognising the problems that beset the economy, the Government embarked on an economic recovery programme.
