The Causes and Consequences of Changing Income Inequality: W(h)ither the Debate?
AbstractThe paper attempts to synthesize the research to date on the contribution of international trade to rising income inequality in the US and to other labour-market developments in other countries. Our basic conclusion is that despite using very different methodologies, on balance most labour and trade economists have arrived at the same broad conclusion that trade has contributed only A RELATIVELY SMALL SHARE OF RISING US INCOME INEQUALITY ACROSS SKILL GROUPS.
