Abstract

Numerous factors have been widely proposed to account for the recent shift in the distribution of skills and wages that has been observed in many developed countries. The research project undertaken under the acronym GRIT reflects on the causes and effects of such changes as well as investigates the substantial variation in patterns across countries. Our research has focused on the role played by institutions in providing a trained and educated workforce and their impact on the way the distribution of wages responds to shocks. This has led us to investigate the way these institutions enhance or constrain the performance of an economy in terms of its capacity to produce innovations underlying growth and its implications towards inequality.
