Human capital, market imperfections and labor reallocation in transition

Rizov, Marian and Swinnen, Johan F.M. (2004) Human capital, market imperfections and labor reallocation in transition. Journal of Comparative Economics, 32 (4) . pp. 745-774. ISSN 0147-5967 [Article] (doi:10.1016/j.jce.2004.08.002)


In this paper, we investigate the effects of human capital and factor market imperfections on household decisions regarding labor use and reallocation in transition countries. We develop a model that accounts explicitly for heterogeneity in the supply of labor and analyze its impact on the allocation of labor. Furthermore, the effects of imperfections in the capital and labor markets on the reallocation process are modeled. Using a dataset based on a countrywide representative survey of Hungarian rural households, we estimate the effects empirically and find them to be important.
