Skrócony opis:

Classes are structured around the fundamental problems of labor economics, from the trade-off between leisure and consumption to the role of technological change. Other key topics include human capital formation, labor demand and remuneration. Besides these main organizing units, classes will include references to transversal topics, such as the role of labor market institutions and policies, and differences along worker?s characteristics.

The course provides a formal treatment of labor market problems. Students are expected to be familiar with standard mathematical and statistical tools including: static and dynamic optimization, and fundamental notions of probability calculus and mathematical statistics.

This class will consist of three different elements

a) Presentation and discussion of theoretical models.

b) Empirical verification of proposed mechanisms and its limitations.

c) Discussion in classes by students.

Pełny opis:

The goal of the course is to give students solid foundations of the main mechanisms underlying modern labor markets at the advanced level. Students completing the class should understand how models are build in labor economics, paying attention to the richness and diversity of the field. Students finishing the course should also be aware of difficulties in taking theoretical models to the data, and be cognizant of econometric tools developed in the credibility revolution. Students should be able to think critically about labor economic problems and provide informed opinions on policy-relevant context.
