Kiel Working Paper No. 1126
This paper seeks to contribute to the ongoing controversy on the distributional effects of structural reforms in developing countries. Applying inequality indices and Fields' (2001) decomposition methodology to Bolivian household survey data of the years 1989 to 1997, we identify recent trends in wage inequality. Using a rent-based dual-economy model, we can link these trends to the structural reforms undertaken in Bolivia since 1985.
