Social Interactions, Ethnic Minorities and Urban Unemployment
AbstractWe develop a model in which blacks' ethnic preferences can lead to adverse labor-market outcomes. Because of these preferences, we show that multiple equilibria emerge: they correspond to different urban structures observed in the US. By incorporating in this spatial structure a simple search model, we show that distance to jobs is crucial to the labor-market outcomes of ethnic minorities whereas it matters less for whites because of their strong inherited advantage in terms of history.
