3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.
