    Profits, Wages and Productivity in the Business Cycle: A Kaldorian Analysis: Economics Books @ Section I of this book explains the effect of diminished dynamism on wage growth and evaluates efforts to raise wages and productivity through human capital investments.

    When one looks at a graph of productivity (for the US) vs real wages, there is a marked "disturbance in the force" around (11/18/18 note: A nearly identical graph appears in Scientific American, Nov , p 61, in an article titled "A Rigged Economy".). Great Divergences: The growing dispersion of wages and productivity in OECD countries Over the last three decades, several OECD and non-OECD economies have experienced increasing inequality in income between the rich and the poor (Piketty , Piketty et al. , OECD ).

    When marginal product of labour is expressed in money terms we obtain VMP L is the change in total revenue following a change in the employment of labour. Marginal productivity theory of wage states that wage of labour equals VMP L (= MRP L).Employer will employ labour up to the point until market wage equals labour’s value of the marginal product (VMP) and marginal revenue product (MRP).   “Harper demonstrated,” Koch wrote in Good Profit, “that real wages are determined by the productivity of labor.

Decoupling of wages and productivity can exacerbate inequalities. Even in countries where there is only limited decoupling of wages from labour productivity growth at the whole economy level, this can mask significant divergences within sectors (OECD, [5]).
