AbstractIndividual wage expectations of the Italian unemployed are studied. The analysis is carried out separately for the north-central and southern Italian regions. Results show a marked difference in expectations formation, with the northern unemployed using information more efficiently. A tentative explanation based on psychological and social factors is offered.
