2- Problem 2 from Chapter 9 in the textbook
Suppose the government's goal is to reduce the unemployment rate. Some legislators propose the
government should give a subsidy s to any firm that hires a worker. Others argue that it would
be more effective to simply pay a any firm that hires a worker. Others argue that it would be
more effective to simply pay consumers to stay home rather than search for work; that is, anyone
who chooses not to participate in the labour force should receive a payment q. Which policy is
more effective in achieving the government's goal? Explain using the DMP model, with the aid of
diagrams. (In your answer, do not concern yourself with how the subsidies from the government
are financed.)
