Which workers suffer (or benefit) from firm-level uncertainty shocks? Prof. Cuñat will use a matched workers-firms dataset of the population of Swedish firms for 1997-2017 to address this question and discuss the interplay between firm-level uncertainty shocks and heterogeneous employment decisions.
