Capital-Skill Complementarity: Does capital disaggregation matter? (with Miguel Lorca and Francisco Parro)

Abstract:

Using Chilean manufacturing plants data, we find: (1) the elasticity of substitution between capital and skilled labor is lower than the elasticity of substitution between capital and unskilled labor, (2) the higher the technological component of the capital stock the larger the size of complementarity between capital and skilled labor, and (3) significant heterogeneity across group of industries. Our findings allow reconciling the observed rise in the skill premium with trade liberalization in developing countries. Additionally, they show that capital, as an aggregate input, may under(over) state the complementarity between labor and the type of capital these workers actually use.
