Session 8: Micro and Macro of Labor Markets

August 29 - 31, 2018

Organized by:

  • Gregor Jarosch, Princeton University
  • Isaac Sorkin, Stanford University

This session will bring together labor economists and macroeconomists with interests in labor markets with two goals.  The first goal is to be a venue to discuss the latest research about labor markets.  The second goal is to promote intellectual exchange among scholars working on similar topics but with different approaches.  Specific topics will depend on the submissions, but likely include inequality, unemployment and vacancies, and the interplay between labor markets, consumption, and the business cycle.
