Demand-Side Changes and the Relative Economic Progress of Black Men: 1940-90.
Reardon, Elaine
Journal of Human Resources, v32 n1 p69-97 Win 1997
Census data from 1940-90 show that skill demands due to technological change accelerated inequality for less skilled workers, partly accounting for the slowed economic progress of black men. It is not female and immigrant labor market entrants, but increased competition from middle-skilled white men that appears to have adverse influence on black males' economic progress. (SK)
