Can Statistical Discrimination Explain Inequality?

Members of this project:

Statistical discrimination starts from the notion of employers’ incomplete information about the real productivity of applicants even some time after hiring. This project focuses on the disputed question whether Phelps’s measurement model of statistical discrimination can explain group inequality in hiring, i.e. group discrimination using dynamic micro simulations.
