Primary Instructor:

The first half of the course will cover models and evidence on training, turnover, labor market discrimination, and the effects of unions on wages and other outcomes.

The second half of the course will address the interface between labor and macro-economics. The main topic of discussion will be the theory of unemployment. Particular emphasis will be on modeling strategies that have been used in this literature, with an aim to expand the bag of tricks that students have at their disposal for their own research. To this end, there will be extensive use of the search theory approach to unemployment, and dynamic models of the labor market more generally.
