A General Equilibrium Skill Acquisitions Model Of Development For Lesotho
Dual economy, large unemployment, a fixed number of skilled workers, perfect capital mobility, migrant labor force working in South African gold mines, and a cycle of poverty characterize Lesotho. This paper develops a general equilibrium model for Lesotho specifying these absorbing economic characteristics. We are particularly interested in constructing a rising step skill acquisition function, which shows that small infusions of human-capital investment would not pull the economy out of its poverty trap, but a large infusion would.
