Globalization and the Inequality-Unemployment Tradeoff
AbstractOver the last 20 years, advanced economies have experienced an "unemployment versus inequality" tradeoff that is critically uneven across countries. To explain this, we propose an extended HOS model in which: the factors are skilled and unskilled labor; there is a continuum of goods; the world comprises two North countries (one egalitarian and one nonegalitarian) and the South; there is no factor price equalization; globalization consists in the South cornering a growing share of world production. In the North, globalization entails an inequality-unemployment tradeoff and the adjustment to globalization is more painful for the country that was initially inequality-oriented.
