What will happen with real wages?

Put aside the rise of China, and think back to when the three major economies were the United States, Japan, and Germany.

Japan has seen a continuing decline in real wages.  The German data are harder to assess, but we have seen periods of wage declines, a lot of wage stagnation, and arguably real wages have declined relative to education levels in the work force.

If we look at U.S. real wages over the next ten years, what is the chance that they rise?
