    • Abstract:
      As this is written, H. Gregg Lewis has just left the University of Chicago for Duke University after having been at Chicago as a student and a faculty member for more than 40 years. It is an appropriate time to try to record his contribution to the field of analytical labor economics, which is so deeply indebted to him. I use the term analytical labor economics, in contrast to institutional labor economics, to mean the application of economic theory and econometrics to problems of the formation of human capital, the allocation of time between market and nonmarket activities, the allocation of labor among alternative uses, and the compensation of labor.
