Do Reservation Wages Really Decline?: Some International Evidence on the Determinants of Reservation Wages

John Addison (), Mário Centeno () and Pedro Portugal

No 85, SOEPpapers on Multidisciplinary Panel Data Research from DIW Berlin, The German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP)

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.
