Description

An increase in within-country wealth and income inequality is one of the most pressing human and economic issues of our times. The increase in the income gap has overlapped the current wave of globalization that has exposed countries to an unprecedented flux of goods, services, capital, and labor across international borders. This research examines the connection between globalization and wage inequality within a unified framework of the trifecta of factors-trade, technology, and immigration, focusing on the evidence derived from comparisons across developing and developed countries.

Anupa Sharma is an assistant professor of economics at NDSU and has been a fellow at Challey Institute for Global Innovation and Growth since 2019. She received her Ph.D. in economics from Virginia Tech in 2016. Her research focuses on international trade and globalization. She studies global trade patterns by examining inter-sector and cross-country linkages in production and consumption, evaluating preferential trade agreements and their welfare implications, and examining the consequences of globalization through interrelationships between freer trade, immigration, and innovation. In her most recent work, she explores the immigrant’s role in technological innovation and economic growth in the presence of institutional barriers. It is the line of work she will be developing at ARC. She will examine the connection between globalization and wage inequality within a unified framework of trade, technology, and immigration, focusing on the evidence derived from comparisons across developing and developed countries.
