fields and classes may be taken individually or out of sequence This part of the sequence is principally concerned with issues relating to the determinants of the wage and salary distribution The first half is organized around topics in wage determination which are of particular interest for current research and policy and culminates with a focus on recent debates about the increasing dispersion of wage and salary income The second half of the course is focused on labor market institutions and technological changes and relates the debate about the income distribution to other major
