The Impact of Computers and Globalization on U.S. Wage Inequality
"... ABSTRACT. The late 1970s and early 1980s was a time of rising wage inequality in the United States, particularly between skilled and unskilled workers. During this time, there was also a dramatic increase in onthejob computer use. Many economists blamed the increase in computer use for the increas ..."

for the increase in wage inequality in the United States. That view became known as the skillbiased technological change hypothesis. But there are problems with the hypothesis in nearly every dimension of wage inequality in the U.S. labor market. A better explanation for the increase in wage inequality
The Contribution of the Minimum Wage to U.S. Wage Inequality over Three Decades: A Reassessment
, 2010
"... We reassess the effect of state and federal minimum wages on U.S. earnings inequality, attending to two issues that appear to bias earlier work: violation of the assumed independence of state wage levels and state wage dispersion, and errorsinvariables that inflate impact estimates via an analogue ..."

The Role of the Minimum Wage in the Evolution of U.S. Wage Inequality over Three Decades: A Modest Re‐Assessment*
, 2009
"... We offer a fresh analysis of the effect of state and federal minimum wages on earnings inequality over 1979 to 2007, exploiting substantially longer state‐level wage panels than were available to earlier studies as well as a proliferation of recent state minimum wage laws. We obtain identification u ..."

suggested by earlier OLS estimates: the minimum wage explains at most 50 % of the rapid rise in female inequality during the 1980s, 25 % of the rise in male inequality, and 30 – 40 % of the rise in pooled gender inequality. Though modest, these impacts are still larger than would be implied if the minimum

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 ..."

PROBABILITY INEQUALITIES FOR SUMS OF BOUNDED RANDOM VARIABLES
, 1962
"... Upper bounds are derived for the probability that the sum S of n independent random variables exceeds its mean ES by a positive number nt. It is assumed that the range of each summand of S is bounded or bounded above. The bounds for Pr(SES> nt) depend only on the endpoints of the ranges of the s ..."

of the smumands and the mean, or the mean and the variance of S. These results are then used to obtain analogous inequalities for certain sums of dependent random variables such as U statistics and the sum of a random sample without replacement from a finite population.
Changes in relative wages, 19631987—Supply and demand factors
 Quarterly Journal of Economics
, 1992
"... A simple supply and demand framework is used to analyze changes in the U. S. wage structure from 1963 to 1987. Rapid secular growth in the demand for moreeducated workers, "moreskilled " workers, and females appears to be the driving force behind observed changes in the wage structure. M ..."

Trends in US Wage Inequality: Revising the Revisionists

A large literature documents a substantial rise in U.S. wage inequality and educational wage differentials during the 1980s and early 1990s and concludes that these wage structure changes can be accounted for by shifts in the supply of and demand for skills reinforced by the erosion of labor market ..."
