摘要:
        In the present paper, I find that wages in U.S. regions have been diverging instead of converging from 1975 onward. This coincides with the period of accelerating skill-biased technological change. A decomposition of the divergence rate indicates three channels underlying the divergence: (1) an ever-widening wage gap between college grad- uates and high school graduates, (2) an increasing within-education-group wage differen- tial across regions, and (3) a concentration of skill composition across local labor markets. I then developed an endogenous skill-biased technology-adoption model in which firms invest capital more intensively in regions with higher employment share of college grad- uates, explaining these three channels jointly. Finally I quantitatively assess the model by separately calibrating the regional aggregate production function; the results show that the relative skilled-labor efficiency has been persistently higher in skill-abundant regions, nevertheless the country-wide skill-biased technological change, is the main force making divergence happening.
