50th Celebratory Volume

Volume Cover


The 50th volume of Research in Labor Economics contains 10 original articles each written by stellar senior scholars in labor economics. Each article deals with an aspect of worker well-being, a hallmark subject of concern especially to labor economists. Of these, five deal directly with human capital and potential earnings, four with institutional impediments to time allocation including work, and one important article shows how economics-based search and matching theory should be applied elsewhere, particularly in epidemiological modeling with regard to pandemics, such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
