Work in Progress

  1. “Labor Taxation and Income Risk over the Cycle: a Dynamic Search-and-Matching Approach”, with Julien Pascal - (Working paper coming soon).

    Abstract: We develop a theoretical framework to evaluate the contribution of different payroll tax schedules to the cyclical behavior of the distribution of individual income shocks along the business cycle. We build a dynamic search-and-matching model of the labor market featuring heterogeneous workers, aggregate and idiosyncratic shocks and a non-linear payroll tax schedule. We solve the model using perturbation techniques developed in Reiter (2009) and Winberry (2016). We estimate the model on Italian administrative data for the period 1980-2012 and use our estimated framework to quantitatively evaluate how different payroll tax schedules can alter the cyclicality of income risk for different types of workers.

  2. “Intra-Firm Hierarchies and Gender Gaps”, with Aseem Patel and Joanne Tan.
