1. 9871 . 6) Continuing in this way we may calculate R(r) for each assumed value of r. 5. 9072 It is apparent that the expected return to search, R(r) is maximised when the reservation wage chosen is f 145. The optimal reservationwage in this case is therefore fl45, and the search rule says that if at any stage a wage W is discovered then: if W~ f 145 accept W and stop searching; if W < f 145 reject W and continue searching with expected return R(l45). More generally, if r* is the optimal reservation wage the optimal search rule is: if W~ r* accept and stop searching if W < r* reject and continue search with expected return R(r*) C.
