Large internal wage disparities between cities can be found worldwide. On the basis of data for Germany, the lecture identifies "assortative matching" of highly qualified employees and companies in large cities as a central driver of this development. A promising strategy to reduce spatial wage disparities is to improve matching in small cities.
