Imports, Exports, and the American Worker

By Susan M. Collins | Go to book overview

James Albrecht suggested that the dichotomy between theoretical trade economists and empirical labor economists had been overblown by some. He saw potential insights from more work that merged trade theory with relevant theory in labor economics, such as the efficiency wage and the equilibrium search theories that have been developed to help explain persistence of unemployment.
