Session 9: The Micro and Macro of Labor Markets

August 28-29, 2019 | Landau Economics Bldg, 579 Serra Mall, Rm 134, Stanford

The idea of this session is to 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.

Organizers: Gregor Jarosch (Princeton University) and Isaac Sorkin (Stanford)
