Search Frictions, Efficiency Wages and Equilibrium Unemployment

Christopher Martin () and Bingsong Wang ()

No 26/14, Department of Economics Working Papers from University of Bath, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper analyses equilibrium unemployment in a model that combines efficiency wages with search and matching frictions in the labour market. We express equilibrium unemployment as the sum of a pure efficiency wage component and a component that reflects search frictions. Using standard values of calibrated parameters, we argue that over 85% of equilibrium unemployment is due to effciency wage effects.
