Some analysts (e.g., most lately Professor Mulligan) have stressed the disincentive results of unemployment insurance on the unemployment rate as well as the level of employment. I think it beneficial to take into account the offsetting results arising from numerous effects, and hence distinguishing in between the two variables.
In my view, the impact of UI is a lot more complex than it would seem at first glance, with UI potentially improving employment although concurrently increasing the unemployment rate. Additionally, according to newer study, even if UI extends unemployment duration, it still may be welfare-enhancing. In other words, some researchers appear to have had their worldview frozen in 1990.
