This chapter reviews the discussions in the preceding chapters. It argues that the distribution of earnings is not outside our control. Although governments are constrained by the global economy and by the pace of technological change, policy still has a role. The evolution of pay norms is partly endogenous, and state enterprises can influence the resulting market equilibrium. Conversely, the privatization of state enterprises can affect pay at both the top and the bottom of the distribution.
