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

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

Working Papers from Banco de Portugal, Economics and Research Department

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, repeated observations on the same individual provide scant evidence of declining reservation wages.
