Decentralized Bargaining: Efficiency and the Core

This paper studies market clearing in matching markets. The model is non-cooperative, fully decentralized, and in Markov strategies. Workers and firms bargain with each other to determine who will be matched to whom and on what terms of trade. Once a worker-firm pair reach agreement they exit the market. Inefficiencies, mismatch, and delay, arise from the strategic response to the potential evolution of the market. The main result identifies a necessary and su¢ cient condition for equilibrium efficiency and shows that inefficiencies are pervasive. Mismatch is a necessary by-product of the market context affecting any bargaining outcome.
