    The author compares the design of unemployment benefit systems in Denmark, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. After discussing the development and role of non-standard employment in these countries, she examines the relevant features of unemployment insurance systems such as hours and earning thresholds and minimum contribution requirements.   And like private health insurance, unemployment ties a critical safety net to the whims of a brutal job market that had hardly even recovered from the crash. Many of the unemployed workers that we, a college administrator and labor lawyer, have spoken to have been reluctant to file.

We show in a tractable life-cycle model how the optimal unemployment replacement ratio and the fall in consumption on job loss depend on the cost. We consider potential sources of this heterogeneity, whether (some of) the unemployed face borrowing constraints, and the implications of this heterogeneity for unemployment insurance.

We show theoretically how the optimal benefit can depend significantly on borrowing constraints, and on other (non-precautionary) savings motives.
