Christoph Albert and Joan Monràs explain why immigration and trade shocks have different impacts on regional economies.
Using a structural model for the U.S. economy, Joan Llull empirically quantifies the importance of two mechanisms: the differential labor market competition induced by immigration on male and female workers, and the availability of cheaper childcare services.
Joan Llull discusses his ERC Starting Grant project in this short video.
Migration is a given. It happens. But what effect does it have on the wages of those already living in the destination country? Joan Llull develops a new estimation technique and uses push factors and distance to investigate how wages in the United States and Canada respond to immigration.
