Abstract

We show the existence of involuntary unemployment without assuming wage rigidity. A key point of our analysis is indivisibility of labor supply. We derive involuntary unemployment by considering utility maximization of consumers and profit maximization of firms in an overlapping generations model under monopolistic competition with indivisibility of labor supply.
