Timothy Noah, author of "The Great Divergence," gives a response to one of Matthew Yglesias' articles about the book. He gives us some key drivers that have been causing the decline of labor unions. European countries have been increasing unionization while the US is at an all time low. He thinks most of this is attributed to the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947, and if we extended the Civil Rights Act to union members it could start to resolve some of the major problems concerning unions.
