Search and Matching Model

It  should  be  clear  to  you  fiom  the  earlier section  that  there  are  a  variety  of models under the rubric of  search theory.  In  this section we examine o,ne  such model  at close quarters.  Peter  Howitt  originally  developed  the  model  as "Business Cycles with Costly Search and Recruiting"  in  the Quarterly Journal of Econometrics  in 1988. The exposition here is based on Blanchard and Fischer (2000). Unlike in  other  sections of this  unit,  the exposition  in  this section is necessarily more technical. It is important to follow it through, perhaps with the help of the book,  in order to get a flavour of the kind  of analysis that you will find in the literature today. The approach is descriptive and the use of equations is minimised. Going through equations, however, can add to the. understanding of  the expounded  ideas  and  you  are advised to follow the  equations-based exposition of the model in Blanchard and Fischer (2000).
