After all, the Greeks were the founders of modern medicine. Remember: myo muscle is not to be confused with myelo bone marrow. Both Latin and Greek play a role in the roots of the word for heart, cardium. This word stems from the Greek word kardia. Pancreas is so named because of its fleshy appearance. Venereal is derived from Venus, the goddess of love.

This might to block unsuitable material. The so-called garage universities may be eroding the value of educational diplomas, critics note, contributing to a decline in the quality of higher education among labor market entrants and thus to a decline in the returns to education. This hypothesis appears at odds with the empirical evidence, though.
First, in several Latin American countries, the education premium has declined more among older cohorts than among younger cohorts. This is explored at length in the cases of Mexico Campos et al.
The available evidence is thus more in line with a skill obsolescence hypothesis than with an eroded value of higher education Campos et al. Direct evidence for Colombia also argues against this channel of decline in the education premium. In particular, Camacho et al.
Hence, there is little evidence that the supply of higher education has been degraded. Another supply-side hypothesis relates to the composition of the supply of educated workers.
According to this hypothesis, demographic changes have resulted in an increase in the share of older workers whose skills become obsolete at a more rapid pace due to the adoption of new technologies, and this effect outweighs the value of work experience.
As a result, the wage premium for tertiary education considering all tertiary educated workers has fallen on average. Campos et al. Replicating their analysis for other countries De la Torre et al. Certainly more research is warranted in this area, however. They show that different education premium trends are present across workers with different levels of labor market experience, and such trends are partially explained by relative labor supply dynamics.
However, an explanation of a reverse trend—the shift from increasing demand for highly skilled workers in the s to declining demand after —is needed to fully account for the observed dynamics in the skill premium. At the macroeconomic level, the shift in labor income inequality trends between the s and the s is not consistent with the constant improvement in the supply of education throughout the period. In other words, the acceleration in the educational attainment of the workforce during the s was not sufficient to explain the rapid decline in the education premium.
Rather, the shift in labor earnings inequality coincided more clearly with substantial increases in labor demand during this period.
The s and s were periods of pronounced business-cycle and labor-demand trends. After a decade of disappointing growth, the region underwent rapid growth in the s in the wake of rising commodity prices and high growth globally, particularly in China and the Group of 7 G7 major advanced economies.
The argument that a reversal in demand trends is needed to account for the shift in wage inequality that occurred in the early s is explored formally by Gasparini et al. Their conclusion is that while supply-side forces mattered for inequality dynamics, demand-side determinants—the focus of this section—are key.
Several demand factors have been highlighted in the literature as important drivers of wage inequality, including changes in the industrial structure; technological change and, more recently, outsourcing ; and international trade. These factors for given skilled and unskilled labor supplies could decrease the wage gap between skilled and unskilled workers, and therefore earnings inequality, by expanding the demand for unskilled labor relative to skilled labor.
The specialization story refers to that hypothesis that deindustrialization in the region by eliminating high-skilled manufacturing job sector in favor of low-skilled positions in the construction and service sectors would decrease the skill premium Gasparini et al. Under this hypothesis, we should see a decline in the share of the labor force and a deeper wage compression in skill-intensive sectors relative to the rest.
This fact, however, is not fully consistent with the fact that sectors that in average demand more education grew comparatively more over this period, in contradiction to the premise of a demand shift towards low-skill sectors De la Torre et al. Moreover, the implicit assumption that services in LAC are less skill intensive than manufactures is not validated by the data De la Torre et al.
Another hypothesis includes skill-biased technological change Acemoglu ; Esquivel and Rodriguez-Lopez This literature emphasizes that, in developed countries, technological change particularly automation is complementary to high-education occupations, a substitute for middle-education occupations, and neither complementary nor a substitute for low-skilled occupations, consistent with a U-shaped change in employment shares across skill levels in the recent decades in the USA.
However, in Latin American and Caribbean countries, evidence suggests that employment shares remained fairly constant across skill levels Messina et al.
In a related strand of the literature, Acemoglu and Feenstra and Hanson emphasize the role of outsourcing in the USA, an issue that deserves further research in Latin America and the Caribbean.
