Course Description:

Wages, employment, and education are key aspects for the well being of most individuals in an economy and labor market policy is an important part of economic policy. A high and persistent level of unemployment is one of the major policy problems in many countries. This course provides an overview on the economic analysis of labor markets. The main parts of the course are static and dynamic theories of labor supply, labor demand, investment into human capital, union theories and wage bargaining, unemployment, as well as issues in immigration economics. The course will be both theoretical and empirical. The practice sessions involve working on problem sets, discussing current research papers or policy reports, and conducting one or two in-class experiments.
