Example text

The opposite signs on the two expressions create a sufficient condition for increased sorting to increase β. 2. 401 This discussion assumed that the j s remained invariant to the change in sorting. 60 Thus, whether the expression is concave or convex may itself depend on β. S. data. They use the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) to obtain a sample of parents and children and group all individuals with high school and below into the unskilled category and everyone who has had at least some college into the skilled one.

57 Suppose next that average fertility is the same across all groups; that is, f j = f . 6) is given by the sign of h + l − 2 m . The intuition behind this is simple. Note that the effect of an increase in sorting is to destroy middle-type matches and replace these by high and low ones. In particular, for every two middle matches destroyed, one high and one low match are created. Because average fertility is the same across family types, the effect of increased sorting depends on whether the fraction of children sent to college on average by two middle-type marriages (2 m ) is smaller than the combined fraction of children that go to college on average in one high-type and one low-type family ( h + l ).

We restrict our attention to those that are locally stable, that is, ∂βt+1 /∂βt |βt =βˆ < 1. Note that in general there may be multiple steady states. To see why this is so, consider what may happen if we start out with a low level of β. In this case, low-type families (and perhaps middle types as well) will be relatively constrained because unskilled wages are low. Thus, this will tend to perpetuate a situation in which β is low next period as well, and thus a steady state with a low proportion of unskilled wages (and high inequality).
