We first analyze administrative firm data for the German manufacturing sector for which price and quantity information at the nine-digit product level, together with employment, working hours and wages are available. We then develop a dynamic model of heterogeneous firms who compete for workers and customers in frictional labor and product markets. Prices and wages are dispersed across firms, reflecting differences in firm productivity and demand. Productivity and demand shocks have distinct implications for the firms' employment, output and price adjustments. In a quantitative analysis, we evaluate the model predictions against the data.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Kaas, Leo</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Kaas, Leo</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-04-04T13:31:46Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-04-04T13:31:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Kimasa, Bihemo Francis</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Kimasa, Bihemo Francis</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Firm dynamics with frictional product and labor markets</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
