Learning objectives
The course aims at examining some specific issues in labour economics from the theoretical and the empirical viewpoint. Students who attend the course will be able to:
- move beyond the standard static model of demand and supply of labour following a flow approach to the labour market
- obtain testable predictions from flow models of the labour market, using the notion of present value of alternative states
- assess the role played by labour market institutions (unemployment subsidy, tax wedge, employment protection legislation) in modifying individual behaviours
- evaluate the role of public policies (employment incentives, active labour market policies, retirement policies) in reducing unemployment and improving labour market participation.
