Peter Gottschalk

Boston College

Peter Gottschalk, professor of economics at Boston College, spent a semester at Russell Sage gathering material that would support his argument that technological change has been an important cause of the increasing inequality in the distribution of income. In new empirical work, he examined technological change in various industries, linking it with census data on employment and wage patterns in these industries.
