Abstract

In the paper the impact of changes in social benefits and taxes on Estonian labor market will be analysed using a simple computable general equilibrium model. The model used in the paper is from Bovenberg et al. (2000), with the addition of an efficiency wage part based on Shapiro and Stiglitz (1984). The model integrates union bargaining and efficiency wage theory into a traditional CGE model framework.
