Title:Do reservation wages really decline? Some international evidence on the determinants of reservation wages PDF Logo
Authors:Addison, John T.

Series/Report no.:IZA Discussion Papers 3289
Abstract:Using cross-country data, we investigate the determinants of reservation wages and their course over the jobless spell. Higher unemployment benefits lead to higher reservation wages. Further, again consistent with the basic search model, repeated observations on the same individual provide scant evidence of declining reservation wages.
Subjects:Reservation wages
probability of reemployment
unemployment benefits
arrival rate of job offers
