    Productivity, Inequality, and the Digital Economy

    A Transatlantic Perspective

    Nathalie Greenan, Yannick L'Horty, and Jacques Mairesse

    Essays on the computer and the economy, particularly in relation to employment rates and to wage inequality.

    The widespread diffusion of information and communication technologies (ICT) has had controversial, seemingly paradoxical consequences. ICT are viewed as driving growth and employment in the United States, while contributing to European unemployment and the so-called Eurosclerosis. At the same time, both the United States and Europe have seen increased wage inequalities between skilled and unskilled workers.This book explores the computer's puzzling effects on the economy, at both the micro and macro levels. The contributions include data from field work, small samples of firms, and national surveys of management practice; econometric studies; and macroeconomic theoretical analysis.

    Edmond Malinvaud is among the world's most highly respected economists. Available for the first time in translation the thirty-four essays collected in these three volumes provide English-speaking readers with an easily accessible and substantial library of current French economic thought, conveying the vitality of economic theory in France today. The essays reflect Malinvaud's own broad contributions to the field and range from theoretical analysis to applied project evaluation, from the formalization of basic concepts to analyses directed toward policy planning and assessment, and from examples of pure statistical methodology to empirical studies.Included are a number of valuable studies on unemployment, one of the basic themes of Malinvaud's work, that report significant advances in the theory of disequilibrium and related approaches. There are essays that provide excellent examples of recent advances in market analysis, that cover important advances in difficult areas of econometrics such as the application of test theory to complex nonlinear cases and the fundamentals of estimation under more realistic hypotheses, and essays that make significant contributions to statistical methods in econometrics, presenting "clean" statistical procedures which contain the elements of solutions to such practical problems as data adjustment.
