Conversations With History: Richard B. Freeman

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Harvard labor economist Richard B. Freeman for a discussion of globalization and its complex consequences for inequality in national and global contexts. He analyzes the implications of the feminization of the labor market, the effect of immigration on national job markets, the shift of policy innovation in the U.S. from the federal government to the states, and the benefits of international labor standards.
