SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 98
Title: Grand Challenges in the Study of Employment and Technological Change
Lead Author: Autor, David H
Abstract: Two forces are rapidly shifting the quality of jobs, reshaping the earnings distribution, altering economic mobility, and redefining gender roles in OECD economies: employment polarization, whereby job opportunities are increasingly concentrated in high-skill, high-wage jobs and in low-skill, low-wage jobs; and a reversal of the gender gap in higher education, reflecting womens rising educational attainment and mens stagnating educational attainment. The result is a labor market that greatly rewards workers with college and graduate degrees but is unfavorable to the less-educated, particularly less-educated males. The economic and social repercussions of polarizing employment growth and stagnating male educational attainment present a challenge and an opportunity for cross-cutting, policy relevant social science research.
