Abstract:

"This book provides an in-depth investigation between human capital and economic growth. The authors take an innovative approach, examining the determinants of economic growth through a historical overview of the concept of human capital." "The text fosters a deep understanding of the connection between human capital and economic growth through the exploration of theoretical approaches, a review of literature, and the application of nonlinear estimation techniques to a comprehensive data set. The authors discuss nonparametric econometric techniques and their application to estimating nonlinearities - which has emerged as one of the most salient features of empirical work in modeling the human capital-growth relationship and the process of economic growth in general."

"By delving into the topic from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, this book offers an insightful new view that will be extremely useful for scholars, students, and policy makers. As an added bonus, the authors provide data and computer programs that readers can use to pursue the topic further."--BOOK JACKET.
