Rent-Sharing in the Labor Market
Is the labor market well-approximated by a competitive model or is wage determination instead a kind of non-competitive rent-sharing? This unsettles question lies at the heart of labor economics and macroeconomics. The paper argues that new research -- drawing upon data of a kind not available to previous generations of researchers -- appears to provide persuasive evidence for the existence of rent-sharing in the labor market.
