Globalization, Technology, and Income Inequality: A Critical Analysis
AbstractMuch of the vast literature on changes in income distribution in advanced countries during the last two decades attributes these either to globalization, or to skill-biased technology, or to a combination of the two. A transatlantic concensus has emerged to suggest that thes two factors have led to reduced relative demand for unskilled labour and to an increase in that for skilled workers. The paper challenge this transatlantic consensus both on analytical and empirical grounds.
