Rosen, A. (1992) An equilibrium search-matching model of discrimination. CEPDP, 97. Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
A model in which firms have incomplete information about workers at the hiring stage is shown to entail discrimination as the unique stable equilibrium outcome, even if no agents have a taste for discrimination. Discriminated groups (e.g., blacks, women) earn lower wages, endure longer unemployment spells, and must satisfy stricter requirements in order to obtain work.
