Labor Associations: The Blue Wall of Silence by David Levine

Join us for the first event of the Microeconomics Research Seminar Series, Autumn Term 2021.

Professor David Levine from the European University Institute will present their research on Labor Associations: The Blue Wall of Silence.

Abstract 

We provide a model showing that a firm’s employees may prefer to protect shirkers because this optimally reduces overall effort. This is the case when labor demand is inelastic and individual behavior is easily monitored. In this case, employees have a strong incentive to conceal information about peers’ performance from firms, what has been infamously known as the blue wall of silence in the case of the police.

This seminar will be held in room 4.204 at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus. This event is open to all levels of study and is also open to the public. To register your place and gain access to the webinar, please contact the seminar organisers.

This event is part of the Microeconomics Research Seminar Series.
