Abstract (Summary)

Over the past centuries, economists have attempted to understand the major sources of long run economic growth and their studies have been focus not only on unveiling its main determinants, but also on the way in which growth affects and transforms the production process and the economy. Within this second group of studies, and especially since the economic stagnation of the 1970s, one of the topics that has attracted more attention in the literature is the analysis of how economic growth impacts on employment and which are the determinants of this relationship.

The aim of this dissertation is to analyze the long run relationship between growth and employment for the case of Argentina. But I will study not only the historical relation and evolution of these variables for the period 1960-2006, but also, by building long run econometric models (Autoregressive Distributed Lag Models and Error Correction Models) and through forecast analysis, I will investigate the future evolution of the relationship between them under different scenarios.
