Informazioni generali

Obiettivi: 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.

Short course description english flag

The course will cover specific policy-relevant topics in labour economics and will examine them both from a theoretical and an empirical viewpoint. It will discuss the different sources of labour market imperfections, their economic effects and the role of the policymaker in addressing the resulting inefficiencies. More in details, the course will first review the baseline perfectly competitive model. Then, it will move to the search and matching models, and will analyze, within this encompassing framework, the role of labour market institutions. Ample space will be devoted to the discussion of the empirical evidence and of the empirical methods needed to gather reliable evidence.
