Do we need a book concentrating solely on the demand side of the labor market? There are ... strong reasons why the answer is yes.... Hamermesh is to be congratulated for providing a text that will stimulate a greater interest in the study of labor demand.---Robert A. Hart, Journal of Political Economy
In addition to discussing the relevant theoretical aspects in the field, Hamermesh spares no effort in providing tabular surveys of the vast empirical literature. Confronting theoretical models with empirical 'facts' of how a firm's labor demand responses to exogenous shocks provides ... 'a dose of reality to the more fanciful flights of macroeconomic theory.'... The book is ... essential reading.---Christoph R. Weiss, Kyklos
From the Back Cover
In this book Daniel Hamermesh provides the first comprehensive picture of the disparate field of labor demand. The author reviews both the static and dynamic theories of labor demand, and provides evaluative summaries of the available empirical research in these two subject areas.
