Research and Creative Activities

My major areas of interest are in Labor Economics, Macroeconomics, International Economics, and Public Policy. Several years ago I co-authored a scholarly book entitled, Who's Not Working and Why: Employment, Cognitive Skills, Wages, and the Changing U.S. Labor Market (Cambridge University Press, 1999). I continue to do research on the increasing inequality of wages in the U.S.
