Curtis Jr (2011) suggests "The study of ...differences in factor market supply decisions and prices, as reflected in the... literature on labor supply, wages and income, presents only a subset of the variables that determine the accumulation and storage of assets over |a| lifetime." Andrew Brimmer (1988) suggests "To a considerable extent, the latter can be traced to a long history of deprivation” (p. 153). However, the empirical analyses necessary to substantiate this proposition have been absent in the literature....Researchers typically conduct statistical tests on the most recent data to analyze...differences...and use these results to propose policies that address the ... gap. But this methodology confines such tests to the variation observed in recent data. Instead, Curtis Jr (2011) proposes...using historical data and comparing these results to studies using recent data" (Curtis Jr 2011). This special issue will "provide new insights about the historical and intertemporal dimensions of the ... gap" Curtis Jr 2011).
