Goy, Siew Ching and Johnes, Geraint (2008) That's what makes the difference today: an international analysis of the determinants of discrimination. Working Paper. Lancaster University, Department of Economics, Lancaster.

The component attributable to different 'prices' in the gender-specific wage equations is then modelled as a function of macroeconomic variables. It is established that increased development and openness lead to reductions in discrimination.
