Blind Cvs - Do Markets Solve the Problem of Discrimination?

Jim Riley

2nd November 2015

The Prime Minister recently announced that the civil service will now introduce name-blind recruitment. When people apply for public sector jobs, their name will not appear on the documents sent to the appointment panel. Major companies such as HSBC, KPMG, the BBC and the NHS are following suit. Economists have produced a substantial body of evidence which shows that some employers discriminate on the basis of the names of the applicants.
