Is Employment Globalizing?

Publication | September 2018

This paper investigates the claim that national labor markets have become more globally interconnected in recent decades.

The authors conclude that the evidence of a large increase in the interconnections between national labor markets is far weaker than commonly asserted. The paper also discusses the implications of these results for different policy debates.
