International trade and skill-biased technological change have been traditionally viewed as two competing explanations of the rise in wage inequality observed in the UK and the USA. In recent years, however, new theoretical work calls for a re-questioning of the assumption that skill-biased technological change is exogenous to international trade.  This seminar will give specific attention to the relationship between trade, technology and labour markets.
