Imperfect competition in product markets and labor markets, general equilibrium and unemployment by Achim Schniewind( )

Awareness of general equilibrium effects and unemployment by Hans Gersbach( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine wage-bargaining in a two-sector economy when employers and labor unions in each sector are not always aware of all general equilibrium feedback effects. We show analytically that if agents only consider labor demand effects, low real wages and low unemployment result. With an intermediate view, i.e. when partial equilibrium effects within a sector are taken into account, high real wages and unemployment result. If all general equilibrium effects are considered at once, low real wages and low unemployment again result. The assumption that unions and employers' federations are not able to incorporate all feedback effects from other sectors may explain the persistence of high unemployment in Europe
Imperfect competition, general equilibrium and unemployment by Hans Gersbach( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyze whether different learning abilities of firms with respect to general equilibrium effects lead to different levels of unemployment. We consider a general equilibrium model where firms in one sector compete à la Cournot and a real wage rigidity leads to unemployment. If firms consider only partial equilibrium effects when choosing quantities, the observation of general equilibrium feedback effects will lead to repeated quantity adjustments until a steady state is reached. When labor is im mobile across industries, unempolyment in the steady state is lower than when all general equilibrium effects are incorporated at once. The opposite result is true if labor is mobile
Learning of general equilibrium effects and the unemployment trap by Hans Gersbach( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine wage bargaining when employers and labor unions do not always take all general equilibrium effects into account but learn a steady state. If agents do hardly consider general equilibrium effects, low real wages and low unemployment results. With an intermediate view, when partial equilibrium effects are taken into account, high real wages and unemployment results, which may explain the persistence of high unemployment in Europe. If all general equilibrium effects are incorporated at once, again low real wages and low unemployment results. We thus obtain a hump-shaped relationship between the extend of feedback effects incorporated by the bargaining parties and real wages or unemployment
Uneven technical progress and unemployment by Hans Gersbach( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a two-sector-economy with real wage rigidity, we examine how technical progress in one sector affects aggregate unemployment. We show that aggregate unemployment decreases for uneven technical change in the case of Cobb-Douglas production functions. For every type of technical progress there are also elasticities of substitution in production and utility functions leading to a rise in unemployment. Moreover, we identify polar cases when unemployment strongly decreases
Product markets reforms to reduce unemployment in Europe : who could be against them? by Hans Gersbach( Book )

Product market reforms and unemployment in Europe by Hans Gersbach( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we study how promoting product market competition by reducing mark-ups or by increasing productivity are able to complement labor market reforms. We use a simple general equilibrium model with different types of labor. The bottom-line of the paper is that product market reforms will help to reduce aggregate unemployment under many circumstances even though sectoral unemployment may increase. We also highlight that the mobility of high-skilled workers and the distribution of unemployment across sectors determine whether productivity improvements in one sector affect aggregate unemployment positively or negatively
