A Note On Human Capital And The Feldstein-Horioka Puzzle
AbstractIn this paper we re-examine the Feldstein-Horioka finding of limited international capital mobility by using a broader view (i.e. including human capital) of investment and saving. We find that the decline in the economic significance of the Feldstein-Horioka result, found in studies using more recent data, holds also for our broader definition of saving and investment.
