---- Acknowledgements -----

This essay is based on the Albert Rees memorial lecture presented to the Society of Labor Economists on June 3, 2005. I have benefited from helpful comments from Hoyt Bleakley, Scott Grosse, and from audiences at LSE, IZE, the 2006 Work, Pensions, and Labour Economics Conference, Vassar, and the 2007 American Economics Association meetings, as well as those of Roger Gordon and three anonymous referees. I am grateful to the Russell Sage Foundation for financial support.
