    Nyckelord :Labour supply; Reference-dependence theory; Neoclassical theory; Taxicab drivers; panel data analysis;

    Sammanfattning : In this paper, panel data on hours worked and wage rates of taxicab drivers in the city of Stockholm are used to analyse whether reference-dependent preferences play a significant role governing labour supply decisions. The results suggest that only a small fraction of wage variation (about 1/5) is unanticipated implying that reference-dependence (which is relevant only in response to unanticipated variation in the wage rate) plays a limited role determining labour supply decisions.

  2. 2. Labor Supply of Stockholm Cab Drivers: Revisiting the Evidence

    C-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Författare :David Jonason; Joel Wållgren; [2013]
    Nyckelord :labor supply; income targeting; life-cycle model; wage elasticity;

    Sammanfattning : In this paper, panel data on the hours worked and wage rates of taxicab drivers in the city of Stockholm are used to test two competing theories of labor supply: the standard neoclassical model, which predicts positive wage elasticity, and the target income model, which predicts negative wage elasticity. Particularly comprehensive and precise data sets allow us to revisit the evidence presented in recent literature that focuses on professions in which workers are free to set their own hours. LÄS MER
