Monopsony in Motion:
Imperfect Competition in Labor Markets
Alan Manning

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"[This book] is bound to propel the idea that labor markets are imperfectly competitive into a new orbit. Students and scholars will benefit from Alan Manning's clear presentation and dispassionate analysis for years to come."--Alan Krueger, Princeton University

"Alan Manning's book fills a real gap in the discipline. The book shows that the monopsony model provides a simple alternative explanation for a number of well-known stylized facts of labor markets."--Coen N. Teulings, General Director, Tinbergen Institute, Amsterdam

"This book pushes a conservative field as hard as possible to adopt a more open attitude toward imperfect competition in the labor market. By leading creative younger scholars to think 'outside the box', it could well become a classic. Carefully organized and well written, it includes an impressive amount of new empirical material on many different aspects of the labor market. Manning has devoted considerable thought to the question of what imperfect competition means for real-world behavior."--David Card, University of California, Berkeley, coauthor of Myth and Measurement

"This is a splendid book. The careful mix of theoretical background and new ways to interpret the empirical evidence provides a unique treatment of the working of the labour market that departs from most other textbooks guided by the competitive paradigm."--Juan J. Dolado, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Co-Director of the CEPR Labour Economics Programme
