Publication Date:

Project Programs:
Social, Political, and Economic Inequality

Our review has the following structure. First, we consider more carefully the argument about what has changed in the employment relations of various groups of workers in the past 25 years. Then, we consider the evidence that tries and measures those changes. We will explicitly try and link these changes to changes in income inequality wherever possible. Finally, we will consider what research is implied by our review.
