RESUMEN: La literatura empírica reciente muestra que el capital humano afecta positivamente al crecimiento de la productividad. Sin embargo, el debate continúa sobre la magnitud de esos efectos en diferentes territorios. En este trabajo se evalúa la contribución del capital humano a la productividad andaluza, en relación al resto de España, que depende tanto de las distintas dotaciones de factor como de las diferentes elasticidades de éste respecto al VAB. Estas diferentes elasticidades pueden servir de guía para orientar la política económica llevada a cabo en Andalucía. Los resultados ponen de manifiesto la conveniencia de fomentar la dotación de capital privado. ABSTRACT: Recent empirical literature shows that human capital positively affects economic growth. However, the debate continues on the magnitude of these effects on the productivity of different territories. In this work, we show human capital effects on Andalusia productivity, related to the rest of Spain. Differences observed depend on their different endowments and also of this factor’s different elasticity. These different elasticities may serve as guideline for economic policy carried out in Andalusia. The results highlight the desirability of promoting the private equity allocation.
