    Is there a way, beyond using expansion / contraction as the primary causal element, to parse out the effect of long-term productivity improvement on wages? It seems HR professionals only see the absolute wage numbers, not some of the seismic shifts underlying our economy.

    That is a good question. There is actually a declining relationship between productivity and wages. I'll devote one of my future blogs to it.
