    • Frictional Labor Mobility 

      Schmutz, B; Sidibe, Modibo (Economic Research Initiatives at Duke (ERID), 2016-05-03)
      We build a dynamic model of migration where, in addition to classical mobility costs, workers face informational frictions that decrease their ability to compete for distant job opportunities. We structurally estimate the ...
    • Frictional Spatial Equilibrium 

      Schmutz, B; Sidibe, Modibo (Economic Research Initiatives at Duke (ERID), 2016-09-27)
