From the Paper:

"Bernstein and Mishel researched data from the federal government's study on family finances. Additional supporting evidence was obtained from the new Economic Report of the President and cited information from the Census Bureau showing earnings from college graduates declined 5.2% while those of high school graduates rose 1.6% from 2001 to 2004. Using this data along with studies from the Kauffman Foundation and Duke University, Bernstein and Mishel concluded the reason for the trend reversal. Bernstein and Mishel attribute the shift in the economic trend to the outsourcing of higher-skilled jobs such as research, corporate finance and engineering to low-cost countries such as China and India."
