We present and discuss the simple search and matching model of the labor market against the background of developments in modern macroeconomics. We derive a simple representation of the model in a general equilibrium context and how the model can be used to analyze various policy issues in labor markets and monetary policy.

A very nice introduction to the topic, good for anyone who wants to learn about the topic, read up one some of its major developments, or assign it to students.
