From Product Concentration to Local Labor Market Outcomes: The Effect on Industry Wages

From Product Concentration to Local Labor Market Outcomes: The Effect on Industry Wages

By:

Petkov, Ivan

Abstract:

In this paper, I examine whether higher product market power can affect labor earnings through its effect on overall labor demand in distinct markets, as a set of dominant firms replaces employment by competitors. To identify relative labor demand shifts, I focus on variations in the spatial concentration within an industry following increases in market power.
