Why Men Earn More on Average than Women—And Always Will

Abstract

The subject of this chapter—the relative pay of men and women in the workplace—might seem odd in a book on “pricing puzzles,” but it really isn’t out of place. To economists, labor is often treated in analyses no differently than other factors of production are treated, as a resource bought and sold under the forces of supply and demand.
