---- Acknowledgements ----
The twelve papers in this volume were prepared for and presented at the NBER Conference on Labor Market Intermediation in May of 2007, and are forthcoming as Studies of Labor Market Intermediation from the University of Chicago Press. The Labor Market Intermediation conference and resulting volume were generously supported by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the National Science Foundation (CAREER award SES-0239538). I am particularly grateful to James Poterba, Marty Feldstein and Richard Freeman for their intellectual guidance and moral support in the development of this endeavor. In addition, David J. Pervin of the University of Chicago Press, Helena Fitz-Patrick of NBER, and two anonymous referees provided invaluable input on the manuscript. I finally thank Carl Beck of NBER for his superb coordination of all aspects of the conference.
