Robust Identification and Inference in Repeated Games, with N. Lomys and L. Magnolfi​​

On the Identification of Models of Uncertainty, Learning, and Human Capital Acquisition and the Determinants of Sorting, with A. de Paula, E. Pastorino, and S. Salgado.

Abstract: We consider a general class of imperfectly competitive models of the labor market with human capital acquisition, learning about worker ability, and job assignment. We prove that these models are identified based on information on workers’ jobs and wages under standard assumptions. We show that accounting for differences in the opportunities for human capital acquisition and learning across jobs and firms helps explain why the measured degree of labor market sorting can be low even in the presence of a high degree of complementarity between firms and workers. We offer a novel decomposition of the determinants of cross-sectional wage inequality and estimate them based on U.S. matched employer-employee data. [Slides]
