Investing in Human Resources


  • Jovan Zubovic


Investing in human resources is a taboo in many countries worldwide. Unlike in undeveloped and transitional economies, in countries with developed economic system there is an open debate about the need to analyse educational policies and investment policies with an aim to increase quality of human resources. There are few blind spots which can substantially reduce long-term value of human capital, and diminish level of investments’ efficiency in educational systems.
