Agenzie di collocamento ed effetti sulle frizioni nel mercato del lavoro


  • Bonaventura Luigi


Questo lavoro analizza gli effetti delle agenzie di collocamento sul mercato del lavoro. Il numero di agenzie in uenza l'e cienza dei meccanismi di incontro tra domanda ed offerta di lavoro. Si introducono le agenzie in un modello di equilibrio di disoccupazione alla Pissarides e si analizzano gli effetti sull'occupazione al variare del numero di agenzie. Si mostra che in presenza di asimmetrie informative, è preferibile avere una sola agenzia (monopolista), oppure è possibile aumentare l'e cienza solo con un numero elevato di agenzie.

    More about this item


    This article analyses the effects of the number of employment agencies on the labour market. The number of agencies affects the efficiency of the mechanisms to match labour market demand and supply. The agencies are inserted into a Pissarides equilibrium unemployment model and the effects on employment with variation in the number of agencies are analysed. It is demonstrated that with incomplete information it is preferable to have one single agency (monopolist); alternatively; efficiency can be enhanced only with a very high number of agencies.;
