On September 26, EUCE Scholar in Residence Bart Rokicki gave a lecture entitled "Regional Wage Determinants: The Wage Curve Approach in Poland, Brazil, and the EU" as part of the European Union Center lecture series.
From Dr. Rokicki's abstract:
We discuss the results of empirical research on regional wage determinants. In particular we focus on the wage curve approach and show recent findings concerning EU member states, taking as an example the Polish wage curve. Here we show the impact of new methods and approaches on results of analysis. We also compare the above with the results for Brazil – a country at a completely different stage of economic development. Finally, we discuss the possible extension of current research on EU countries, which takes into account different social systems that are existing in Europe.
