Abstract

In this note I discuss the condition for indeterminacy in the context of search models with increasing returns in the matching technology. Building on the theoretical framework set forth by Giammarioli (2003), I argue that increasing returns with respect to vacancies at the aggregate level is only a necessary requirement for indeterminate equilibrium paths. Specifically, I show that sunspot equilibria can actually be obtained by imposing an additional condition between the private and the social elasticity of the matching function with respect to unemployment.
