How would you classify labor economists as neo-classical or neo-institutionalist? I have just begun reading Boyer and Smith (2001) and the authors emphasize the role that institutionalist have played in labor economics as well as neo-classical labor economist. For example, could we classify labor economist graduated from Harvard University during the 1970s like Francine D. Blau a neo-institutionalist since her papers are in the are of gender wage discrimination?

Would love to know your thoughts?
