    Abstract

    El propósito de este artículo es determinar en qué medida el capital humano contribuye a explicar la competitividad de una economía. Para ello, en primer lugar, analizamos la evolución de dichas variables en los países de Asia, para lo cual empleamos una variable “stock” de capital humano (el porcentaje de población mayor de 25 años que ha alcanzado al menos estudios secundarios) y una variable ex–post de competitividad (la cuota de mercado). Posteriormente, realizamos un análisis de correlaciones para determinar el vínculo existente entre el capital humano y la competitividad. The purpose of this work is to determine in what extent the human capital contributes to explain the competitiveness of an economy. For this, firstly, we analyse the evolution of this variables in the Asian countries. For this, we use a stock variable of human capital (the percentage of population aged 25 to 64 which finished secondary education at least) and an ex-post variable of competitiveness (the market share). Subsequently, we carry out a correlation analysis to determine the link between human capital and competitiveness.
