Kristal Tali

Senior Lecturer



Kristal’s research focuses on pay-setting institutions, politics, and the causes of economic inequality in the United States, Israel, and other affluent countries. Current projects include an analysis of the impact of computerization and fading pay-setting institutions on rising wage and benefits inequality in the United States (with Yinon Cohen), and an investigation into how computerization has influenced the decline of unions.
