Economics of Work and Pay: Theory, Institutions and Evidence|
Fall 2006 not offered
This course provides an in-depth exploration of modern labor economics. Using the tools of economic analysis, we investigate the determinants of work and pay. Topics include productivity and labor demand, employment contracts, unemployment, unions, inequality, human capital, and models of discrimination. Issues of race, gender and class enter into the discussion. We will rely on a combination of economic theory, empirical evidence, and institutional detail to address labor market problems and related policy questions.
