Description:
Human Capital in Economic History: Measurement, Determinants and Implications
Location:
Tuebingen, Tuebingen University, Germany
Subject:
This twoday workshop focuses on the role of human capital and education in economic history. Many different questions of human capital formation will be addressed, for example: - What caused rapid human capital development, what retarded it? Can we distinguish between schooling, cognitive abilities, and other determinants? - Is there a special role for selective migration in the human capital formation process? - What about inequalities, for example, between occupational groups and genders? - Are there implications on economic growth and other spheres of human development? - Are the expectations based on Unified Growth Theory (and other theories) supported by the evidence? - Are there special archival sources for human capital measurement that have not been used before?
