Labor Market Participation, Unemployment and Monetary Policy

Alessia Campolmi () and Stefano Gnocchi ()

Staff Working Papers from Bank of Canada

Abstract: We incorporate a participation decision in a standard New Keynesian model with matching frictions and show that treating the labor force as constant leads to incorrect evaluation of alternative policies. We also show that the presence of a participation margin mitigates the Shimer critique.
