Question details

​Outsourcing, immigration, and the gains of the​ super-rich are the most common reasons for the income inequality in America. Tyler Cowen​ disagrees: The problem is largely the lack of education. To​ date, outsourcing is not yet common enough to have much effect. Immigration​ doesn't account for much of the change in the wages paid to unskilled workers since 1950. Advances in technology raises the incomes of highly skilled workers. Inequality will be reduced if more people undertake education.
