About Labor Economics at University of Chicago

For Summer 2020, this course will be taught online. 

****

First Day of Class: June 22, 2020

This course is an introduction to labor economics with an emphasis on applied microeconomic theory and empirical analysis.  Topics to be covered include: labor supply and demand, taxes and transfers, minimum wages, immigration, human capital, creativity over the lifecycle and unemployment.  For each topic we will describe the basic economic framework used in the analysis, analyze associated cases of study and drawn conclusions about what we have learned.  Most of the examples will be taken from U.S. labor data and special attention will be given to randomized trials and experimental methods to infer causality.
