The economies of many advanced countries are currently going through a period of structural adjustment caused mainly by the globalization of production and technological change. Already, economists are beginning to analyze the impact of this new state of affairs upon labor markets. In this volume, Horst Siebert brings together twelve experts from around the world to examine these sectoral structural changes at various levels of aggregation -- among them, the way that age and gender relate to the overall composition of the labor force, the development of different occupations within industries, and the reasons for the varying experiential and educational backgrounds of the workforce. Conducted for both major industrial countries such as the United States and Japan and for the smaller open economies of Denmark and the Netherlands, for instance, these analyses will be of interest to international economists on a broad scale.
