Inequality and the Organisation of Work in a Knowledge Economy

Firms are increasingly viewed as playing a central role in the evolution of wage inequality. Across many advanced economies, a prominent feature of wage dispersion and its rise since the 1980s is the large and increased share attributable to between-firm differences in pay. In this project, Lukas develops, tests, and quantifies a novel theory to explain this trend. Find out more about Lukas Freund’s Keynes Fund project on the Keynes Fund website:
