L'instruction publique de Condorcet. Progrès économique et réflexions sur la notion de capital humain
This paper brings out the originality of Condorcet’s analysis on the idea of human capital. If Smith is usually recognized as the father of the modern concept of human capital, Condorcet’s analysis relative to this concept are rarely mentionned. We show in this paper that Condorcet’s analysis distinguishes itself from Smith’s analysis, on the one hand, by its thought on the risky nature of human capital. On the other hand, he offers an original economic analysis about instruction by linking public instruction to arts and sciences progress. Classification JEL : B1, I20, O3
