Urban Labor Economics by Yves Zenou

By Yves Zenou

The purpose of this booklet is to check the hyperlinks among city economics and hard work economics. diversified versions of city hard work monetary thought are tested within the preliminary components of this ebook: first city search-matching types (Part 1) after which city potency wages (Part 2). partially three, we follow those versions to investigate city ghettos and their outcomes for ethnic minorities within the hard work industry. Professor Zenou first presents diverse mechanisms for the so-called spatial mismatch speculation, which postulates that housing discrimination introduces a key frictional issue that stops minorities from enhancing entry to task possibilities by means of moving their apartments in the direction of jobs. He then explores social networks, which are usually plagued by spatial components, as employees who're bodily as regards to jobs might be socially far-off from them. in keeping with those versions, the writer bargains diversified regulations aiming at battling excessive unemployment charges skilled via ethnic minorities living in segregated components.

522. The sign ‘−’ indicates the ‘limit to the left’, whereas the sign ‘+’ indicates the ‘limit to the right’. 4%). However, it is clear that this result is due to the spatial part of unemployment ukσ since the non-spatial part uk0 is not at all affected by this increase. 3. 65. Another way of seeing this is to consider column 6 (ukσ /uk∗ ): the part of unemployment which is due to space varies from 2% to 46%. So the main effect of switching from one equilibrium to another is that search frictions are amplified by space and consequently, there is a sharp increase in unemployment rates.

Decomposition of Unemployment. We pursue our analysis by determining the part of unemployment that is only due to spatial frictions. For Search Effort as a Function of Distance to Jobs 39 simplicity, we focus on Equilibrium 2 where the unemployed live far away from jobs. The analysis for the other equilibrium is straightforward since it is nearly identical. We also normalize the total population so that N = 1. Let us start with exogenous wages. 64). 66), the unemployment rate is given by: u2 = δ .

30) yields: β 1−β ∂IL ∂IU − ∂w L ∂w L IF + I L − I U ∂ IF = 0. 32) Since the wage is negotiated in each period, I U does not depend on the ∂IU ∂IL current wage, w L and so ∂w = 0. 32) can be written as: c β . 26), we finally obtain: w L = (1 − β) [wU + (1 − s ) τ L ] + β (y + c s θ ) . 34). The wage can be seen as a weighted average of unemployment income [wU + (1 − s ) τ L ] and current and future matching productivity (y + c s θ), the weights being β and 14 For the interpretation of this parameter β, see Binmore, Rubinstein, and Wolinsky (1986).
