Great post. Thanks.

Hey this is another great post. I'll email the link to Mark Thoma again if you don't mind. I think your blog deserves more recognition. I'd love to have you debate say Dean Baker on what pragmatic progressive policies should look like.

Unions seem to play an important role in reducing reducing wage inequality, which is much lower in the Nordic countries than in the US. Does that imply that non-wage income inequalities are huge in Sweden or Germany?

I would also argue that unions are important for developing any kind of political momentum for left economic policies.

I don't see how that link contradicts the LIS study. Nor does it say anything about unions: the focus is on education.
