Title: The Trade and Labour Approaches to Wage Inequality

Author(s): Jonathan Haskel

Publication Date: June 2000

Keyword(s): Stolper-Samuelson Effects, Technical change and Wage Inequality

Programme Area(s): International Macroeconomics

Abstract: We compare the trade and labour approaches to wage inequality. We first look at the theoretical differences, stressing the different roles ascribed to sector and factor bias, labour supply and the theory of technical change in trade models with endogenous prices. We then briefly review some of the evidence on the sector bias of prices and technology.
