Minimum prices in a model with search frictions and price posting
Economics Letters, 2015, vol. 135, issue C, 61-64
In this paper I consider the effects of a minimum price (maximum wage) in a random search model with price (wage) posting. I show that with a minimum price, the price distribution will have a mass point. If the minimum price is sufficiently high, the price distribution will become degenerate.
