- QUOTE: Several US studies show that fluctuations in relative labor supply play an important role in explaining trends in the skill premium (e.g. [[Katz and Murphy (1992)]], Card and Lemieux (2001)). We find that fluctuations in relative supply go a long way in explaining trends in the wage differential between the medium- and low-skilled, but only weakly predict trends in the wage differential between the high- and the medium-skilled. Why did the slowdown in skill upgrading and the erosion in labor market institutions happen a decade earlier in the US than in Germany?
