The economics of the employer mandate

Last fall I was invited to write an essay for a publication. My contribution was to comment on some aspect of the ACA. I decided to focus on the employer mandate and potential effects on the US labor market.

Writing/presenting about the law is always a challenge as it 1) seems to constantly change and 2) there is very little data available since many aspects of the law are just beginning. I gave it a fair shot relying on economic theory and what little we do know as of now.

You can read the draft of my essay below.
