dc.description.abstractUS earnings inequality has increased dramatically since the 1970s, and the prospect of a reversal depends on what caused the trend. The standard explanation emphasizes skill-biased technical change. This paper briefly considers some aggregation issues and then proceeds to outline two alternative perspectives - power biased technical change and the effects of induced mismatch in the labor market - and their implications.en_US
