Abstract

This chapter uses original data to examine the connection between the gender composition of firms’ employees and the market structure in which those firms operate. We were involved in the collection of the data and it has not been previously used for this purpose. We argue that Hong Kong just prior to the establishment of the Special Administrative Region provides an interesting test case and that the results reflect a highly flexible and deregulated labor market. As such, the findings from Hong Kong are not just one more data point but rather evidence from an environment more closely fitting the ideal of the neoclassical economist.
