Where Have All the (Good) Jobs Gone? 2015 Economic Forecast with Professor John Abowd

event / ldi

The Cornell Club-New York

Most people expect a labor economist to think about good jobs in terms of their compensation for the employee, but this is not the most productive way to think about the problem. Instead, Professor Abowd focuses on jobs that add substantially to the productive capacity of the economy. Economists call these "high surplus" jobs. You can think of them as closely related to jobs where there is substantial sales/worker (a simple measure of productivity).
