A model of power-biased technological change
Skott, P. and Guy, Frederick (2007) A model of power-biased technological change. Economics Letters 95 (1), pp. 124-131. ISSN 0165-1765.
New technologies have allowed firms to monitor low-skill workers more closely, thus reducing the power of these workers. We show that this ‘power-biased’ change may generate rising wage inequality and increases in the work intensity and unemployment of low-skill workers.
