- assess the role played by labour market institutions (unemployment subsidy, tax wedge, employment protection legislation) in modifying individual behaviours
- use Economics for studying human resources management issues, with particular attention to optimal compensation and recruitment practices.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
At the end of the course students will be able to:
- evaluate the role of public policies in different countries according to country-specific institutions
- evaluate the role of public policies (employment incentives, active labour market policies, retirement policies) in reducing unemployment and improving labour market participation.
- design an incentive wage policy.
