Educação, Crescimento Econômico E Distribuição De Renda: Por Que A Elite Se Apropria Do Conhecimento?
The paper reviews some relations between economic growth and the level of education attained by the individuals. It is shown that, whenever the consumptiondecisions are affected by a preference for education, a concept described by introducing knowledge in the utility function, the decisions of the consumers are affected when the provision of capital and skills differ. Individual choices are, therefore, affected by pressure mechanisms applied over the decisions of the social planner, and richer people are able to extend their privileges by having preferred access to education.
