A Historical Approach to American Skill Differentials
This paper studies the evolution of three historical time series on skill premiums in the United States during the major part of the 19th and 2oth century. A descriptive analysis leads us to asses the existence of a systematic relation between the series and the inflation rate, pointing towards the presence of a strong rigidity in the wages of skilled workers.
