The Global Decline of the Labor Share

In their paper, Loukas Karabarbounis (University of Chicago and NBER) and Brent Neiman (University of Chicago and NBER) document that the global labor income share has significantly declined since the early 1980s, with the decline occurring within the large majority of countries and industries. They intend to show that the decrease in the relative price of investment goods, often attributed to advances in information technology and the computer age, induced firms to shift away from labor and toward capital. The lower price of investment goods explains roughly half of the observed decline in the labor share, even when they allow for other mechanisms influencing factor shares such as increasing profits, capital-augmenting technology growth, and the changing skill composition of the labor force. They highlight the implications of this explanation for welfare and macroeconomic dynamics.
