The Department of Economics Applied Microeconomics Seminar Series presents
"Unobserved Heterogeneity in Matching Games"
with Jeremy Fox, University of Michigan
April 26, 2011
Social Science Plaza B, Room 3266
Agents in two-sided matching games are heterogeneous in characteristics that are both observable and unobservable in typical data on matching markets. Fox investigates the identification of distributions of unobserved agent characteristics, unobserved agent preferences and related complementarity functions using data on who matches with whom. Fox imposes the equilibrium concept of pairwise stability and show that the distribution of unobservables can be recovered. Fox explores both one-to-one and many-to-many matching games.
