El efecto nivel del capital humano en el crecimiento económico y regional: Un breve repaso a la evidencia empírica


Author Info

  • María Jesús Freire-Serén


RESUMEN En este trabajo se presenta un breve repaso por algunos resultados obtenidos sobre el papel directo del capital humano en el crecimiento económico. Además se añaden nuevas estimaciones de la especificación Cobb-Douglas de la función de producción, utilizando tanto datos internacionales como de las CC.AA. españolas. Analizaremos si el asumir o no el supuesto de rendimientos constantes a escala puede determinar en algunos casos los resultados relativos al papel que juega el capital humano como factor productivo. ABSTRACT The central concern of this paper is to present a survey on the empirical relationship between human capital and economic growth. Moreover to analyze the existence of this relationship, we estimate the Cobb-Douglas production function using international data and Spanish regional data. We want to check if the results depend on the constant return to scale assumption.
