Hiring as Investment Behavior
AbstractThis paper explores the determinants and stochastic properties of hiring at the aggregate, macroeconomic level. At the core of the analysis is a present value relation which defines the worker's "asset value" for the firm and determines optimal hiring. The paper validates this relation using volatility tests and infers the unobserved asset values by estimating it.
