From Chopper to Celt: The Evolution of Resharpening Techniques

The hypothesis is that as raw material procurement costs rise, reduction and resharpening techniques will adapt to compensate. The increased use made of cutting tools led to an evolution in resharpening, from hard hammer to soft hammer, to secondary reshaping...

The Great Reversal in the Demand for Skill and Cognitive Tasks

This paper argues that several of the poor labor market outcomes observed in the Great Recession can be traced back to a change in the demand pattern for skilled workers that started with the tech bust of 2000. In particular, we show that around the year...
