dc.description.abstractWe construct a general dynamic structural model of two-sided learning between a firm and itsworkers. We estimate an empirical version of the model using personnel data from FokkerAircraft that cover the path of layoffs and quits through its bankruptcy. We find that the firmlearns about its workers? loyalty (demonstrating the role of information in repeatedcooperative principal-agent relationships). There is no evidence that workers learn(consistent with earlier empirical results on American workers). The type of data that we usealso generates information on the value of learning and on whether and how thecharacteristics of workers who remain until the firm?s death differ from those of all affectedworkers. It thus allows us to measure the increases in the firm?s value from learning about itsworkers? behavior and to infer the extent of biases in estimated losses from displacementfrom samples restricted to displaced workers.en_US
