This book presents the work of one of the most important economists of the second half of the 20th century, Jacob Mincer. Mincer played a central role in shaping contemporary labor economics, namely through his pioneering work in human capital and labor supply analysis. The book presents a systematic analysis of all his extensive published work, emphasizing its continuity as a lifetime research program that had a lasting influence in modern labor economics. The analysis also highlights his main theoretical and methodological traits that make his research so unique.
