Symposium on the economic returns to education
|Title:||Symposium on the economic returns to education||Authors:||Walsh, Brendan M.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1530||Date:||1998||Abstract:||In my contribution to this Symposium I wish to explore two main themes. The first deals with the contribution of education to economic growth at the macro level. In this part I shall discuss the evidence of the importance of education – or human capital formation – as a determinant of the cross-country differences in living standards and rates of economic growth. The second topic I wish to develop is the measurement of the return to education at the level of the individual. In my review of both themes I shall refer to the policy implications and show how Ireland relates to the international experience.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Copyright (published version):||1998 The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Subject LCSH:||Education--Economic aspects
