Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo es el analisis de la contribucion de la educacion al crecimiento economico en America Latina, mediante un analisis que parte de la tradicional funcion de produccion Cobb-Douglas, siguiendo el enfoque de Neira y Guisan (1999), pero en el que se realiza una nueva forma de analisis del efecto que la educacion ejerce sobre el crecimiento del PIB per capita a traves de su relacion con el capital fisico. The aim of this paper is to analyse the contribution of education to economic growth in Latin America, throughout an analysis that starts from the traditional Cobb-Douglas production function, but in which a new analytical tool is employed to study the effect that education has over the growth of the GDP per capita through its relation with physical capital.
