Inequality and Growth in a Panel of Countries
 JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC GROWTH
, 1999
"... Evidence from a broad panel of countries shows little overall relation between income inequality and rates of growth and investment. However, for growth, higher inequality tends to retard growth in poor countries and encourage growth in richer places. The Kuznets curve—whereby inequality first incre ..."

Computing Inequality: Have Computers Changed the Labor Market?
 QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS
, 1998
"... This paper examines the effect of skillbiased technological change as measured by computerization on the recent widening of U. S. educational wage differentials. An analysis of aggregate changes in the relative supplies and wages of workers by education from 1940 to 1996 indicates strong and persis ..."

Automatic Discovery of Linear Restraints Among Variables of a Program
, 1978
"... The model of abstract interpretation of programs developed by Cousot and Cousot [2nd ISOP, 1976], Cousot and Cousot [POPL 1977] and Cousot [PhD thesis 1978] is applied to the static determination of linear equality or inequality invariant relations among numerical variables of programs. ..."

Compressed sensing
, 2004
"... We study the notion of Compressed Sensing (CS) as put forward in [14] and related work [20, 3, 4]. The basic idea behind CS is that a signal or image, unknown but supposed to be compressible by a known transform, (eg. wavelet or Fourier), can be subjected to fewer measurements than the nominal numbe ..."

Features of similarity.
 Psychological Review
, 1977
"... Similarity plays a fundamental role in theories of knowledge and behavior. It serves as an organizing principle by which individuals classify objects, form concepts, and make generalizations. Indeed, the concept of similarity is ubiquitous in psychological theory. It underlies the accounts of stimu ..."

, errors of substitution, and correlation between occurrences. Analyses of these data attempt to explain the observed similarity relations and to capture the underlying structure of the objects under study. The theoretical analysis of similarity relations has been dominated by geometric models
Foreign Direct Investment and Relative Wages: Evidence from Mexico’s Maquiladoras
 Journal of International Economics
, 1997
"... In this paper, we examine the increase in relative wages for skilled workers in Mexico during the 1980s. Rising wage inequality in Mexico is linked to foreign capital inflows. We study the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on the skilled labor share of wages in Mexico over 1975–1988. We meas ..."

Concentration Of Measure And Isoperimetric Inequalities In Product Spaces
, 1995
"... The concentration of measure phenomenon in product spaces roughly states that, if a set A in a product# N of probability spaces has measure at least one half, "most" of the points of# N are "close" to A. We proceed to a systematic exploration of this phenomenon. The meaning o ..."

of the word "most" is made rigorous by isoperimetrictype inequalities that bound the measure of the exceptional sets. The meaning of the work "close" is defined in three main ways, each of them giving rise to related, but different inequalities. The inequalities are all proved through a
Strictly Proper Scoring Rules, Prediction, and Estimation
, 2007
"... Scoring rules assess the quality of probabilistic forecasts, by assigning a numerical score based on the predictive distribution and on the event or value that materializes. A scoring rule is proper if the forecaster maximizes the expected score for an observation drawn from the distribution F if he ..."

, the energy score admits a kernel representation in terms of negative definite functions, with links to inequalities of Hoeffding type, in both univariate and multivariate settings. Proper scoring rules for quantile and interval forecasts are also discussed. We relate proper scoring rules to Bayes factors

The relative quantity of skilled labor has increased substantially, and the skill premium, which is the wage of skilled labor relative to unskilled labor, has grown significantly since 1980 ..."
