We will analyze individual-level, firm-level and market-level factors affecting employment and unemployment. We will also study the role of international forces and country-specific institutional rules governing labour decisions on the part of individuals and firms. The course has two objectives: to help you understand the operation of labour markets and to give you the economic tools to explain and discuss public policy issues.
