Hugo Hopenhayn in the Marginal Revolution

Professor Hopenhayn’s paper “From Population Growth to firm Demographics” was featured in Marginal Revolution today. Alex Tabarrok described it as “The best paper I have read in a long time”.

He goes on to write: “The authors do a great job at combining empirics and theory to explain an important fact about the world in an innovative and surprising way. The question the paper addresses is: Why is dynamism declining? [They] point to a factor which is widespread across the entire economy, declining labor force growth.”
