The Cyclical Behavior of Equilibrium Unemployment and Vacancies Revisited


Hagedorn, Marcus; Manovskii, Iourii (2007). The Cyclical Behavior of Equilibrium Unemployment and Vacancies Revisited. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 351, University of Zurich.

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 use data on the cost of vacancy creation and cyclicality of wages to identify the two key parameters of the model - the value of non-market activity and the bargaining weights. Our calibration implies that the model is, in fact, consistent with the data.
