1. Ryoichi Imai, Tax Wedge and Job Distribution with Directed Search, Search and Matching Theory Workshop 2018 Fukuoka Japan, 2018.03, [URL], In a model with two types (good and bad) of jobs and directed search, the effect of taxation is explored.

2. Ryoichi Imai, Resale with multiple inventory, Singapore Search and Matching Workshop, 2014.05, [URL], I present a model of the resale market in which middlemen hold multiple
inventory. In the economy, there are a new good market and a resale market.

of the resale market. In the buy side, trades are frictionless in the sense that
consumers can imediately sell their used goods to middlemen, which is the
gain to use the resale market. In the sell side, however, trades are frictional
in the sense that meddlemen match demand to supply between buyers and
sellers. I show that resale provides liquidity to the economy, and improves
the welfere of consumers as well as the prots of the new good supplier..
