Supervision and Effort in an Intertemporal Efficiency Wage Model: The Role of the Solow Condition
AbstractThe Solow condition is examined in an intertemporal model that blends the shirking and the turnover models of efficiency wages with managerial supervision. It is shown that the Solow condition does not hold when shirking and turnover costs are considered. The Solow condition can be a possible outcome when managerial productivity offsets shirking and turnover costs.
