- Workshop on Labor Mobility, the Housing Market and Labor Market Outcomes
- Louvain-la-neuve, University of Louvain, Belgium
- Regional disparities in unemployment and wages are large, often persistent, and presumably not efficient. To what extent is it due to a range of frictions (search-matching frictions, lack of labor mobility,...), imperfect competition or discrimination? Is the functioning of the housing market (homeownership, housing busts,...) part of the explanation? Do agglomeration forcesreinforce/reduce these disparities? Is public intervention an additional cause or instead required to correct inefficiencies?The workshop aims at bringing together high-quality papers that deal with explanations of this phenomenon.Theoretical and empirical contributions are equally welcome.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
