Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is aimed at doctoral students with a special research interest in macroeconomics.
Papers and models covered in this course have in common that they introduce search models of decentralized trade as they are applied to labor markets. A particular focus will lie on models that try to explain the empirically observed dispersion of individual wages - a phenomenon that has received much attention from theorists as well as applied economists.
Issues such as the efficiency of allocations, informational imperfections, or worker and firm heterogeneity are covered. Students are equipped with the tools needed to fully understand these articles, and encouraged to formulate their own research question(s). The ultimate goal is to help students take off on an independent research project.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Following a thorough introduction of the search and matching framework and related key
concepts by the professor, each student is expected to present at least one of the papers
assigned from the reading list. The presentation should last for about 40 minutes, leaving time for discussion. All other students are required to have carefully read these papers in advance and to actively participate in the discussion. There is a final exam on the last day of class.

The home page for this course is at homepage.univie.ac.at/monika.merz/ Required readings, notes, and announcements are posted on this page.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The course grade will be based on in-class presentation (40%), participation during class
hours (30%), and the final exam (30%).
