Trends in Wage Inequality, Economic Globalisation and Labour Market Policies and Institutions
Abstract:This chapter affords an overview of longer‐term and recent trends in wage inequality, examines developments in various aspects of economic globalisation and technological change, and looks at changes in product and labour market regulations and policies. It also supplies empirical evidence as to the association between, on the one hand, changes over time in wage inequality and, on the other, growing globalisation, technological progress and developments in policies.
