The long term effect of education spending decentralization on human capital in Spain
|Title:||The long term effect of education spending decentralization on human capital in Spain||Authors:||Merrouche, Ouarda||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1837||Date:||16-Feb-2007||Online since:||2010-02-08T16:45:32Z||Abstract:||In 1980, seven out of the seventeen Spanish regions were devolved education spending responsibility. Using a difference-in-differences approach, which I show to be particularly credible in this context, I evaluate the long term effect of this reform on human capital. I find no robust evidence to corroborate the theoretically predicted benefits of decentralization.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
