This research project aims at investigating how the polarization of jobs and wages – as established by the economic literature for a number of countries, particularly the US – has been evolving in Germany during the last four decades. In doing so, we focus on both the risks of technological progress, e.g. job destruction and wage losses, and the opportunities, e.g. job creation and wage gains at both the upper and the lower end of the wage distribution. The analyses take into account the regional dimension as well as the role of specific technologies and expectations.
