R&D, Unemployment, and Labor Market Policies

Hiroaki Miyamoto

No EMS_2010_04, Working Papers from Research Institute, International University of Japan

Abstract: This paper studies the effects of labor market policies on R&D activities and unemployment. I develop a search and matching model in which firms' R&D decisions are endogenously determined. The model demonstrates that more intensive labor market policies that protect workers reduce the levels of R&D activities. This study offers a theoretical framework to understand the relationship between R&D activities, labor market policies, and unemployment which is discussed in empirical studies.
