Returns to labour and chaotic cycles of wage and employment

  • Luciano Fanti

This paper discusses the dynamics of a standard (double Cobb-Douglas) labour market under the circumstance of changes in returns to labour. Despite the simplicity as well as the vast diffusion of this model, such an issue has so far escaped closer scrutiny by economic dynamics literature. This investigation shows: i) possible chaotic behaviours in a simple walrasian market, ii) the multiple roles that returns to labour play on the stability, and iii) the corresponding implications for stabilization policy.
