The Relevance Of Christopher Pissarides' Contribution To Mena Labor Markets
High unemployment rates in MENA appear to be structural in nature and result from the significant segmentation of the region's economies along formal-informal and public-private lines. It thus appears at first that Christopher's Pissarides' seminal contribution on the search theoretic underpinnings of unemployment are less relevant than a Harris-Todaro-type dual economy model. Nevertheless, I argue in this essay that Pissarides' search theoretic framework is becoming increasingly relevant as the role of public sectors in the labor market is gradually attenuated.
