A Sharp Concentration Inequality With Applications
, 1999
"... We derive a new general concentrationofmeasure inequality. The concentration inequality applies, among others, to configuration functions as defined by Talagrand and also to combinatorial entropies such as the logarithm of the number of increasing subsequences in a random permutation and to Va ..."

The Economics of Inequality
, 1975
"... Measures of inequality are used by economists to answer a wide range of questions. Is the distribution of income more equal than it was in the past? Are underdeveloped countries characterised by greater inequality than advanced countries? Do taxes lead to greater equality in the distri ..."

Inequality and Growth in a Panel of Countries
 JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC GROWTH
, 1999
"... Evidence from a broad panel of countries shows little overall relation between income inequality and rates of growth and investment. However, for growth, higher inequality tends to retard growth in poor countries and encourage growth in richer places. The Kuznets curve—whereby inequality first incre ..."

Concentration Of Measure And Isoperimetric Inequalities In Product Spaces
, 1995
"... . The concentration of measure phenomenon in product spaces roughly states that, if a set A in a product# N of probability spaces has measure at least one half, "most" of the points of# N are "close" to A. We proceed to a systematic exploration of this phenomenon. The meaning ..."

Computing Inequality: Have Computers Changed the Labor Market?”Quarterly
 Journal of Economics
, 1998
"... This paper examines the effect of skillbiased technological change as measured by computerization on the recent widening of U. S. educational wage differentials. An analysis of aggregate changes in the relative supplies and wages of workers by education from 1940 to 1996 indicates strong and persis ..."

This paper examines the effect of skillbiased technological change as measured by computerization on the recent widening of U. S. educational wage differentials. An analysis of aggregate changes in the relative supplies and wages of workers by education from 1940 to 1996 indicates strong and persistent growth in relative demand favoring college graduates. Rapid skill upgrading within detailed industries accounts for most of the growth in the relative demand for college workers, particularly since 1970. Analyses of four data sets indicate that the rate of skill upgrading has been greater in more computerintensive industries. I.

Exact Sampling with Coupled Markov Chains and Applications to Statistical Mechanics
, 1996
"... For many applications it is useful to sample from a finite set of objects in accordance with some particular distribution. One approach is to run an ergodic (i.e., irreducible aperiodic) Markov chain whose stationary distribution is the desired distribution on this set; after the Markov chain has ..."
