Market access and human capital accumulation: the European Union case
AbstractThis study evaluates the role that market access plays in determining the spatial distribution of educational attainment levels among EU regions. Evidence is provided showing that in the EU educational attainment levels are higher in those regions with greater market access. This finding proves that remoteness is a penalty for the economic development and convergence of the European Union regions.
