A theory of earnings distribution by Robert K. von Weizsäcker( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An understanding of the origins of earnings distributions is of central importance for any public policy which has the aim of combating economic inequality. The aim of this book is to provide a satisfactory theoretical foundation which could serve as the rational basis for such policies. The approach, strongly influenced by human capital theory, is especially novel in that it permits individual analyses at three interconnecting levels of aggregation using the same basic microeconomic model: the level of earnings distribution within age groups; the level of the overall earnings distribution across all age groups; and the distribution of lifetime earnings. The analysis demonstrates the interdependence between age composition, inequality, and public distribution policy. It also addresses the question of how differences between individuals are transformed into income differences
Bildung und Wirtschaftswachstum by Robert K. von Weizsäcker( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in German and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Thema Bildung und Wirtschaftswachstum hat Tradition. Während in den sechziger Jahren die Impulse direkt aus der Wachstumstheorie kamen, sind es heute zahlreiche Teilströmungen der Bildungsökonomie, die die Klammer zwischen Humanressourcen und Produktivitätswachstum neu beleben. Die in diesem Band zusammengefaßten Beiträge, die im Bildungsökonomischen Ausschuß 1996 in Mannheim präsentiert wurden, unternehmen den Versuch, das bisweilen etwas eklektische Wechselspiel zwischen Bildung und Wirtschaftswachstum durch einige institutionelle, empirische und theoretische Mosaiksteine weiterzuentwick

Risk, resources and education by Berthold U Wigger( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In virtually all developed countries the government is engaged in higher education. One of the arguments commonly used is that higher education contributes to economic growth. In fact, recent developments in the theory of economic growth, initiated by the seminal papers by Romer (1986) and Lucas (1988), have identified investment in education, especially in higher education, as a key element of economic growth. 1
Deregulierung und Finanzierung des Bildungswesens( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sowohl in der wissenschaftlichen als auch in der öffentlichen Diskussion stehen Fragen der Umgestaltung des Bildungswesens ganz oben auf der Tagesordnung. Das hat vielfältige Ursachen. Diese gründen sich nicht nur auf den klassischen Zielkonflikt zwischen Effizienz und Gerechtigkeit, sondern reflektieren auch Folgewirkungen des technischen Fortschritts sowie die zunehmende Internationalisierung der Bildungssysteme. Die in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland stattfindende Reformdiskussion folgt damit einem Anpassungszwang des ""Marktes für Humankapital"" an die Gegebenheiten des wirtschaftlichen Wettbewerbs innerhalb und zwischen hochentwickelten Industrieländern
Does an aging population increase inequality? by Robert K. von Weizsäcker( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public pension reform, demographics, and inequality by Robert K. von Weizsäcker( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from a simple, descriptive model of individual income, an explicit link between the age composition of a population and the personal distribution of incomes is established. Demographic effects on income inequality are derived. Next, a pay-as-you-go financed state pension system is introduced. The resulting government budget constraint entails interrelations between fiscal and demographic variables, causing an additional, indirect demographic impact on the distribution. This is shown not only to change, but in some cases even to reverse the distributional incidence of an aging population. Several policy conflicts arise. The point is reemphasized by an analysis of the German Pension Reform Act of 1992. The study reveals that the design of the pension formula decisively drives the relation between demographics and inequality

Reason, intuition, and time by Marco Sahm( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the influence of reason and intuition on decision making over time. Facing a sequence of similar problems, agents can either decide rationally according to expected utility theory or intuitively according to case-based decision theory. Rational decisions are more precise but create higher costs, though these costs may decrease over time. We find that intuition will outperform reason in the long run if individuals are sufficiently ambitious. Moreover, intuitive decisions are prevalent in early and late stages of a learning process, whereas reason governs decisions in intermediate stages. Examples range from playing behavior in games like Chess to professional decisions during a manager's career
Tax policy, investments in human and physical capital, and productivity by Marc Nerlove( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper analyzes the implications of tax policy for the accumulation of human and physical capital and for the overall productivity level of the economy. A comprehensive income tax, applying to both labour income and capital income. discriminates against investments in human capital relative to investments in physical capital. Hence. it has an adverse impact on human capital accumulation. Taking into account a positive external effect of investments in human capital on overall productivity, the adverse effect of income taxation on human capital investments is significantly magnified
