Human Capital in the Contemporary Empirical Theory of Economic Growth


Author Info

  • Ralitsa Simeonova-Ganeva


An effort was made to classify the contemporary models of economic growth, including the production factor – human capital. The models are identified according to the applied analysis approach, as well as according to the mechanism of the effect of the human factor on the growth. The focus is placed on the econometric modeling and the empirical estimate of the influence of the human capital on the econometric growth. The main studies and results are shown both in the neoclassical and in the endogenous empirical models of growth. The key conclusions are revealed from the theoretical and empirical modeling of growth and the role of human capital, illustrated in the annexes by means of summed up tables and conclusions with selected models of growth and human capital.
