Financial Market in the Czech Republic and Human Capital Investment: Private Financing of Higher Education
In this paper we investigate the possibilities of investing in human capital at the financial market of the Czech Republic. In particular, the conditions for this investment would be different among individuals due to the difference of bequest amount and the credit market condition in financing the money for human capital investment or education. There is also higher risk for possible investors in determining individuals' income and in adverse selection. Our paper deals with the possibilities of avoiding these problems and we use our data from the survey of Czech universities students' earnings expectations collected during the years 2002 - 2004. We use expected returns to education of the Czech higher education students as a benchmark for creating student loans and human capital contracts models. Financial market and institutions should offer different ways of financial assistance. However, financial market of the Czech Republic is not prepared for this type of investment.
