Not all difference results from discrimination. Not all discrimination results in observable differences. This course focuses on issues of difference and discrimination associated mainly with race and gender, focusing particularly (but not exclusively) on the labour market.
We will apply economic theory to the labour market and consider alternative economic theories of discrimination. We will examine empirical evidence on earnings and employment outcomes and we will look carefully at the ways in which econometrics has been used to address questions of discrimination.
