dc.description.abstractThe extent to which rising wage inequality in developed nations can be attributed to increased North-South trade has been a contentious issue over the last 20 years or so. We contribute to the debate by outlining a new skill classification method and evaluating the link between trade and wages using an economy-wide model. Our skill classification considers both academic and vocational qualifications and uses cluster methods to group together occupations with similar skill characteristics.en_NZ
