Education and the Employment Contract.
Blaug, Mark
Education Economics, v1 n1 p21-33 1993
Efficiency wage models explain unemployment as a manifestation of the unavoidable incompleteness of the employment contract. In hiring workers, firms use education as a screen to determine the quantity and quality of the effort that a worker might exert in performing his or her duties. This generates a hierarchy of workers. (KDP)
