Topics in Labour Economics, Migration and Intergenerational Mobility
This course reviews recent contributions in labour economics on (i) inequality and intergenerational mobility and (ii) the labor market effects of immigration and local adjustments to economic shocks. We first cover the literature on intergenerational mobility. Particular focus will be on novel research designs exploiting large-scale administrative data, recent evidence on multigenerational mobility, and the role of firms in intergenerational processes. We then study local adjustments to economic shocks. While our focus is on the labor market effects of immigration, we also cover related work on labor demand and other economic shocks. We also discuss the implementation and challenges of the “shift share” instrumental variable approach. Theoretically, we compare classic factor proportions and more recent monopsonistic models of the labor market. Empirically, we study the different margins of adjustment via which local labor markets may adjust.
