Unemployment Insurance

January 21st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Why don’t we have unemployment loans instead of unemployment insurance? Right now, the government gives money to people who are unemployed, for some period of time. As I recall, the economic reason is that we don’t want people to take jobs too soon– we want them to search. But why not just loan them the money, then? That solves the liquidity problem.
