inactivity VS unemployment, and reservation wage

Post by Luca Tiberti » Mon Jun 11, 2018 1:26 pm

Thanks Ivana. I have a few issues to share with you and your team:

- You found that young and older women transit to inactivity as a result of the austerity measures. How can you be sure that they (at least partly) do not transit to unemployment? This distinction has important welfare and policy implications (especially if a social security system for unemployed people exists).

- Austerity measures can affect the individual reservation wage and, so, labour supply effects. You should at least discuss such mechanism, even if just narratively.

- Minor remark: make sure not to cite grey literature, if the reference has been published in a journal (e.g., Bourguignon et al.)

thanks.

Dear Luca,

thank you for your comments.

1) we will check the robustness of our results by excluding transitions to unemployment from our sample, and performing the same analysis again

2) we will consider the possible effects of the austerity measures on reservation wage in the final draft. This is a good idea and we will think about this further.

3) thank you, yes we will use the reference that has been published in a journal
