Current ResearchMy current activities include research on the effect of matching problems on employment and hence also unemployment. I focus in particular on the distinction between vacancies as ‘job openings’ (recruitment processes), which are measured in traditional vacancy statistics, and vacancies as ‘unfilled jobs’ (unmet labour demand), which have not been measured until recently.
After a long break I have also resumed research on oligopoly theory. Within the framework of “no side payments and partial preplay communication” I try to develop a model of price formation where firms decide non-cooperatively on production and marketing while the market price is set by a "competitive price leader", i.e. a firm preferring the lowest market price.
