How well does a dynamic Mincer equation fit NLSY data? Evidence based on a simple wage-bargaining model

Corrado Andini ()

Empirical Economics, 2013, vol. 44, issue 3, 1519-1543

Abstract: This article argues that a dynamic Mincer equation can be seen as the solution of a simple wage-bargaining model between a worker and an employer where the unemployment-benefit level, affecting the outside option of the worker, depends on past wages. Further, it shows that this model provides a good fit of the US National Longitudinal Survey of Youth data. The evidence is robust to a number of sensitivity checks. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2013
