This session is at the intersection of Labor, Macro, and Public Economics. In the past few years, there has been a burgeoning interest in the use of general equilibrium models disciplined by micro data to analyze labor markets and evaluate policies that affect them. The use of these models to conduct comprehensive quantitative analyses of labor market policies is still in its infancy, though. The goal of this session is to bring together a diverse group of scholars, both young and established, engaged in frontier research in this area. This session is open to any contribution in this area.
