Publisher Synopsis

I found that the book offers a timely discussion regarding a much politicized debate around the responsibility of societies to invest more in education and on their young people. The book is a gold Read more...

schema:description""David Card and Alan B. Krueger have made substantial contributions to the field of Labor Economics. Their influential work focuses on policy-relevant issues and spans vast and important topics, including: unemployment, minimum wage, migration, measurement error, unions, wage differentials among various groups in the US, labor demand, social insurance, and technological change. Card and Krueger have also been extremely influential in econometrics methodology; they were at the forefront of employing an "experimental" approach in their research design and implementation. Both of these IZA prize winners have made significant methodological contributions on instrumental variable estimation, measurement error, regression discontinuity methods, and the use of "natural" experiments. This book provides an overview of their most important work and is divided two main parts: the first section focuses on school quality and the differences in wages across groups in the U.S.; the second part concentrates on the effect of changes in the minimum wage on employment and wage setting. In section introductions, Card and Krueger offer their insight into these two areas and discuss the historical context for their research. [Includes:] winners of the IZA Prize in Labor Economics in 2006; Includes the authors' most influential work on minimum wage, wage inequality, the role of unions, the effects of immigration on the labor market, and the effect of school quality on earnings; The authors' work has shaped the research agenda in labor economics and promoted the use of natural experiments "--Publisher's website."@en
