    1. Introduction. An implication of Shumpeter’s “creative destruction” is that productivity increases during recessions as the economy is “cleansed” of the least productive firms and resources are reallocated to more productive firms (Caballero and Hammour, , Caballero and Hammour, ).However, Barlevy () argues that the cleansing effect may not operate as described when Author: Felix Rioja, Fernando Rios-Avila, Neven Valev.   To hear cable TV networks tell it, a recession is just around the corner, and even worse, it's a recession that will "destroy millennials," according to one terrifying headline from The : Jo Yurcaba.

    Furthermore, through illustrations of real world recessions and offering ways to deal with recessions, Nagle¿½s work helps to further research through insights as to how future recessions may be predicted by the average citizen.

In the literature that argues for a cleansing effect of recessions, a lot of emphasis is placed on the belief that cleansing occurs at the destruction (or exit) margin. That belief rests on earlier research, which found that job destructions at continuing plants are strongly countercyclical.

Keynesians suggest that recessions result from economy-wide slumps in demand and do not produce a lasting change in industrial structure.

An alternate view, often associated with Joseph Schumpeter, is that recessions promote “creative destruction” and help reallocate labor and other resources away from less-productive firms to more-productive competitors.

Recessions kill off inefficient firms; but at least in this case, those that survive come out stronger than before. (I can’t resist noting that some macroeconomists have referred to this phenomenon as “the cleansing effect of recessions,” especially apropos in this case!) Tags: recession.

The good news is those that survive come out bigger and stronger than before. They inherit customers left behind by failed businesses. Fewer competitors, more customers. Macroeconomists refer to this phenomenon as “the cleansing effect of recessions”. While the cleansing effect of recessions holds true regardless of the presence of credit frictions or the nature of the shock, we show that the intensity of the cleansing effect is dampened in the presence of credit frictions, especially when the recession is driven by a financial by: Downloadable (with restrictions).

The overall effect of recessions on allocative efficiency thus depends on the relative magnitude of the two effects. The idea of the cleansing effect of recessions goes back to Joseph Schumpeter, who saw recessions “not simply as evils, which we might attempt to suppress, but – perhaps undesirable – forms of something which has to be done, namely, adjustment to previous economic change.”.

According to the conventional view, recessions improve resource allocation by driving out less productive firms. This paper posits an additional scarring effect: recessions impede the developments of potentially superior firms by destroying them during their infancy. A model is developed to capture both the cleansing and the scarring by:.

This paper proposes that the conventional cleansing effect is offset by a scarring effect. Recessions impede the development of potentially superior firms, which might put innovations to better uses, but which are destroyed during their infancy, and never realize their potential.
