    Este estudo tem por objetivo analisar a relação entre capital humano dos indivíduos empregados, abertura comercial e crescimento econômico dos estados brasileiros no período de 1995 a 2006. Por meio do procedimento de dados em painel dinâmico, estimaram-se dois modelos teóricos: o de Solow estendido e outro, com progresso tecnológico endógeno. Os resultados indicam que um aumento no nível de abertura comercial de 1%, em média, aumenta a taxa de crescimento do Produto Interno Bruto (PIB) per capita dos estados brasileiros entre 0,09 e 0,13 ponto percentual (p.p.). Já um aumento de um ano no nível médio da escolaridade dos trabalhadores gera aumento entre 0,06 p.p. e 0,07 p.p. na taxa de crescimento do PIB per capita desses estados. Trade openness, human capital and economic growth in Brazil :: This paper aims to analyze the relationship among human capital of employed labor force, trade openness and economic growth of the Brazilian states. Using a dynamic panel procedure, two theoretical models were estimated: one is the extended Solow model and the other model has endogenous technological progress. The results indicate that 1% – increased level of trade openness increases, on average, the GDP – per capita growth rate between 0.09 to 0.13 percentage points. Already an increase of 1 year in the average level of workers’ schooling leads to an increase of 0.06 pp thru 0.07 pp in this GDP per capita growth rate.
