Paradoxes of the Measurement of Human Capital
AbstractThe article considers the evolution of the main approaches to the measurement of human capital. It shows that each approach disregards some important aspects of the phenomenon, which leads to biases in the results of statistical research. Major inconsistences arise in Russia and other transition economies, whereas the problems are less acute in countries that have a developed competitive labor market.
