  • Eeckhout, Jan; Weng, Xi (Elsevier, 2015)
    In many economic environments, agents often continue to learn about the same underlying state variable, even if they switch action. For example, a worker's ability revealed in one job or when unemployed is informative about ...
  • Martínez Carrasco, Miguel Ángel (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2015-06-22)
    New managerial practices are not use on isolation. Managers use different organizational tools to maximize their firm’s profits and they interact with the pre-established practices of the company. This dissertation analyzes ...
  • Schreibweis, Michael (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2014-05-05)
    The thesis deals with monitoring strategies designed to implement self-enforcing collusive agreements when individual choices remain hidden and firms use public information stemming from different sources. With imperfect ...
  • Hedtrich, Christoph (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2019-10-31)
    This thesis is composed of three articles. The first addresses the recent decline in worker mobility between jobs and links it to changes in demand for jobs along the skill distribution. I present a novel theoretical ...
  • Daniele, Federica (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2018-11-05)
    This thesis is composed of three essays in which I analyze how heterogeneity in productivity, either on the worker or on the firm side, interacts with the size of local labor markets and a set of outcomes of interest. In ...
  • Figueiredo, Ana (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2018-09-28)
    This thesis studies the mechanisms behind talent misallocation, how it varies over the business cycle and its implications for wage cyclicality. The first chapter shows that uncertainty about education returns has an ...
  • Coles, Melvyn G.; Eeckhout, Jan (2000-02-01)
    A model of directed search with a finite number of buyers and sellers is considered, where sellers compete in direct mechanisms. Buyer heterogeneity and Nash equilibrium results in perfect sorting. The restriction to ...
  • Chade, Hector; Eeckhout, Jan (Wiley, 2018)
    We analyze the optimal allocation of experts to teams, where experts differ in the precision of their information, and study the assortative matching properties of the resulting assignment. The main insight is that in ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Jovanovic, Boyan (Elsevier, 2012)
    The rise in world trade since 1970 has been accompanied by a rise in the geographic span of control of management and, hence, also a rise in the e ective international mobility of labor services. We study the e ect of such ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Kircher, Philipp Albert Theodor (Econometric Society, 2010)
    We investigate the role of search frictions in markets with price competition and how it leads to sorting of heterogeneous agents. There are two aspects of value creation: the match value when two agents actually trade and ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan (Annual Reviews, 2018)
    This review surveys the literature on sorting in the labor market. There are inherent differences in worker ability and across-firm productivity. Two fundamental questions are whether the exact composition of skills of ...
  • Chade, Hector; Eeckhout, Jan; Smith, Lones (American Economic Association, 2017)
    Toward understanding assortative matching, this is a self-contained introduction to research on search and matching. We first explore the nontransferable and perfectly transferable utility matching paradigms, and then a ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Kircher, Philipp Albert Theodor (Elsevier, 2010)
    In a market where sellers compete by posting trading mechanisms, we allow for a general search technology and show that its features crucially affect the equilibrium mechanism. Price posting prevails when meetings are ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Pinheiro, Roberto; Schmidheiny, Kurt (University of Chicago Press, 2014)
    We investigate the role of skill complementarities in production and mobility across cities. The nature of the complementarities determines the equilibrium skill distribution across cities. With extreme-skill complementarity, ...
  • Milán, Pau (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2016-06-16)
    This thesis explores various economic environments where the structure of social interactions across individuals determines outcomes. In the first chapter, I study mutual insurance arrangements restricted on a social ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Persico, Nicola; Todd, Petra (American Economic Association, 2010)
    An incentives based theory of policing is developed which can explain the phenomenon of random “crackdowns,” i.e., intermittent periods of high interdiction/surveillance. For a variety of police objective functions, random ...
  • Eeckhout, Jan; Lindenlaub, Ilse (American Economic Association, 2019)
    The labor market by itself can create cyclical outcomes, even in the absence of exogenous shocks. We propose a theory in which the search behavior of the employed has profound aggregate implications for the unemployed. ...
  • Morron Salmeron, Adrià (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2017-05-30)
    The existence of transportation costs gives labor markets a local dimension. In particular, the well-documented existence of agglomeration economies creates a positive correlation between a city's size and the productivity ...
