“An Experimental Study of the Value of Postsecondary Credentials in the Labor Market”

Walter Oi, a distinguished labor economist who visited the Industrial Relations Section in 1973-74, died on December 24th, 2013 in Rochester, NY.

Walter was an influential economist and a friend and mentor of many who admired his work.  His "Labor as a Quasi-Fixed Factor" set the standard for all modern studies of labor demand, emphasizing the role of hiring and related costs as an explanation for why employment changes are a lagged response to demand shocks.
