Abstract

The system-wide impacts of imperfect competition in the regional labour market are examined by means of a macro - micro simulation model (AMOS) parameterised on Scottish data. A number of theories of the operation of the regional labour market are reviewed and it is indicated how these can be operationalised within AMOS through the adoption of different labour-market closures. Two sets of simulations are performed. The first involves nominal and real wage shocks to the regional economy. In the second, a demand disturbance is introduced under various labour-market closures. The sensitivity of the results to assumptions concerning the openness of the regional economy and the flexibility of the production technology is also discussed.
