dc.description.abstractFeenstra and Hanson (1997) have argued in the context of the North American Free TradeAgreement that US outsourcing to Mexico leads to an increase in the skill premium in boththe US and Mexico. In this paper we show on the example of Austria and Poland that with thenew international division of labour emerging in Europe Austria, the high income country, isspecializing in the low skill intensive part of the value chain and Poland, the low incomecountry, is specializing in the high skill part. As a result, skilled workers in Austria are losingfrom outsourcing, while gaining in Poland. In Austria, relative wages for human capitaldeclined by 2 percent during 1995-2002 and increased by 41 percent during 1994-2002 inPoland. In both countries outsourcing contributes roughly 35 percent to these changes in therelative wages for skilled workers. Furthermore, we show that Austria's R&D policy hascontributed to an increase in the skill premium thereen_US
