dc.description.abstractIn this paper we investigate the importance of labor market institutions such asunemployment insurance, unions, firing regulation and minimum wages for the evolution ofwage inequality across countries. We derive a simple log-linear equation of the wagedifferential as a function of the institutional parameters, total factor productivity, final goodprices and relative skill supply. Our estimates for 11 OECD countries imply that labor marketinstitutions can account for a large part of the change of wage inequality across countriesafter controlling for time and country effects.en_US
