Factor subsidies, employment generation, and cost per job: a partial equilibrium approach
AbstractFactor subsidies in a perfectly competitive setting are analysed.

A similar procedure is used to investigate the exchequer cost per job of general labour and capital subsidies in an industry with Cobb - Douglas technology. The analysis is relieved with illustrative simulations in which 'representative' parameter values are used,
