A Response of the Economy to Changes in Employment Structure
Shapoval Alexander and Goncharenko Vasily
D. Public economics
Policy brief

This paper examines the response of economies to shocks in demand. The analysis is performed by using a general equilibrium model with monopolisti ompetition in hi-tech sectors, perfect ompetition in a traditional sector, labor market frictions, and bargaining that determines wages. We posit that labor market frictions result in unemployment in the equilibrium. Under a positive shock in demand, new individuals become unemployed. If the elasticity of substitution between varieties of dierentiated goods is a decreasing/increasing function, then the intersector wage inequality enlarges/falls. In the first case, all individuals gain but those who lost their jobs.
