【6.14讲座】Joseph Kaboski: Skill-Biased Structural Change
来源:时间:2018-06-11作者:
Skill-Biased Structural Change



Time:10:30am-12:00pm, Jun 14, 2018
Venue:Room 359S, Overseas Exchange Center, Peking University
Speaker:Joseph Kaboski (Prof.of Economics in the Department of Economics at the University of Notre Dame)



【Abstract】

We document for a broad panel of advanced economies that increases in GDP per capita are associated with a systematic shift in the composition of value added to sectors that are intensive in high-skill labor, a process we label as skill biased structural change. It follows that further development in these economies leads to an increase in there lative demand for skilled labor. We develop a two-sector model of this process and use it to assess the contribution of this process of skill-biased structural change to the rise of the skill premium in both the US, and a broad panel of advanced economies, over the period 1977 to 2005. We find that these compositional changes in demand account for between 25 and 30% of the over all increase of the skill premium due to technical change.
