    Abstract

    "This paper analyses age and experience profiles of earnings inequality for American and Brazilian males. Decomposition of the inequality profiles using a human capital framework clarifies the determinants of cross-section inequality profiles and demonstrates a number of important differences in the shape of the two countries' profiles and in their underlying components. Changes in the distribution of schooling across cohorts are shown to play a central role in explaining cross-section inequality profiles within each country and in explaining differences in earnings inequality in the United States and Brazil."
