Gender Wage Gap

Superfreakonomics takes on the question of the "gender wage gap". The conclusion are what I would have expected: "while gender discrimination may be a minor contributor to the male-female wage differential, it is desire — or the lack thereof — that accounts for most of the wage gap. The economists identified three main factors:"

I would be interested to see a similar treatment of the question of age-discrimination.
