Macroeconomic Modelling of the Labour Market (PhD Thesis)
My thesis focuses on macroeconomic modelling of the labour market using
Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) and Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models. The first three chapters utilize DSGE models calibrated to the Dutch economy. Their main feature is the adoption of the Mortensen-Pissarides matching function approach. The final chapter constructs a CGE model to investigate the effects of fuel subsidies on Iran’s labour market.
