Abstract

The impact of technology compared to trade on events in labor markets, especially the changes in the wage premium (the ration of skilled to unskilled wages) and the mismatch of skills, is considered in this paper. The drivers and some outcomes are identified. New data from the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council is used to inform the discussion. The analysis leads to ideas about a new human capital development strategy relevant for globalised economies.
