Human Capital and Economic Growth – Summary of the 35th Economics Conference of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank
AbstractThe 35th Economics Conference of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank, which took place on May 21 and 22, 2007, focused on the relationship between human capital and economic development as well as on the question of whether education policy can have a positive impact on this relationship. Good education systems can help step up slow productivity growth in Europe and help countries adjust to structural changes caused by globalization. The 35th Economics Conference followed up on the previous year’s conference, which had explored globalization and the opportunities of economic policy in providing answers to future challenges. At the European level, the biggest need for adjustment was identified in the tertiary education sector, whereas Austria was judged to need reforms of its secondary education system as well. The speakers and panelists of the event included high-level experts of central banks and international organizations, as well as scientists, entrepreneurs, and politicians.
