This chapter discusses the impact of labor-market regimes in the economic history of the United States. It discusses the contrast between the labor systems of the antebellum northern and southern economies, and moves on to the shifts in labor-market regimes shaped by the Civil War, the world wars, and the Great Depression. These regime shifts shaped labor-market outcomes, such as wages, working conditions, and employment, as well as the dynamics of technology and human capital accumulation.
