The cyclical behavior of equilibrium unemployment and vacancies revisited


Hagedorn, Marcus; Manovskii, Iourii (2008). The cyclical behavior of equilibrium unemployment and vacancies revisited. American Economic Review, 98(4):1692-1706.

Abstract

Recently, a number of authors have argued that the standard search model cannot generate the observed business-cycle-frequency fluctuations in unemployment and job vacancies, given shocks of a plausible magnitude. We propose a new calibration strategy of the standard model that uses data on the cost of vacancy creation and cyclicality of wages to identify the two key parameters - the value of nonmarket activity and the bargaining weights. Our calibration implies that the model is consistent with the data.
