Evolution of Worker-Employer Networks and Behaviors Under Alternative Non-Employment Benefits: An Agent-Based Computational Approach

  • Pingle, Mark
  • Tesfatsion, Leigh

This study uses an agent-based computational experiments to examine the effects of a non-employment payment on network formation and work-site behaviors among workers and employers participating in a sequential employment game with incomplete contracts. Findings are compared with those obtained for a parallel labor market experiment conducted with human subjects. Related work can be accessed at: http://www2.econ.iastate.edu/tesfatsi/tnghome.htm
