Social Accounting and Welfare Measurement in a Growth Model with Human Capital

  • Aronsson, Thomas
  • Lofgren, Karl-Gustaf
Registered author(s):

    This paper addresses social accounting and welfare measurement in an economy where human capital is an important factor in the economic system. Human capital accumulation depends on the time consumers spend in education. However, human capital is also a separate argument in the production function facing firms, which gives rise to a production externality. In a command optimum, where the externality is internalized, the authors show that an augmented net national product measure is the appropriate welfare indicator. They also discuss the tax-transfer system required for the decentralized economy to reach a command optimum. Copyright 1996 by The editors of the Scandinavian Journal of Economics.
