Recent work has documented a negative impact of Chinese competition on U.S. workers: Average earnings have declined and earnings inequality has increased. In this presentation, I will document a similar pattern for France and discuss different margins of adjustment of French workers to import competition.

Martí Mestieri's research focuses on international trade and economic growth. His research analyzes how technology adoption, human capital acquisition and different trade regimes affect economic growth and income inequality across and within countries.

This is part of the Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium. On Fridays during the school year, the Buffett Institute hosts Northwestern faculty and/or visiting fellows to present their current research. This forum brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. The series helps promote dialogue on scholarship and develop a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Please arrive early to get lunch and find a seat.
