abstract

  • Canada-USA comparisons are used to examine whether recent wage polarization is a general phenomenon, or more of a U.S. experience (it is the latter). The role of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in "polarization" is examined and the Canadian productivity and ICT lags relative to the U.S. are discussed. ICT is a recent tool and thus discussions of its "demise" need to be cautious.
