Universities' Research Conference on the Economics of High-Skill Labor Markets
The conference will focus on the labor market for high wage and high skill employees. As economies develop, a greater proportion of workers become "knowledge workers." These high-skill workers create new challenges and issues for employers, co-workers, and policy makers. Papers may address a single high-skill occupation (for example, doctors, lawyers, executives, or academics) or high-skill workers more generally. Topics might include (but are not limited to) challenges in recruiting high skill workers, how workers and firms find efficient (or inefficient) employment matches, the types of incentives used in high skill labor markets, the existence of "glass ceilings" (differences related to gender, race, or other factors), and how social connections and networks affect labor market outcomes. Papers that analyze relevant public policy issues, such as taxation, education subsidies, or discrimination, are also welcome.
