Abstract

Cuando se mide la tasa de retorno de la educación para los segmentos, considerados por el DANE en la ENH, a los cuales un individuo pertenece, la rentabilidad social resulta mucho mayor que la individual. Usando una modelización que reconoce simultáneamente al individuo dentro de un colectivo y los determinantes del nivel agregado, se encuentra que la diferencia obedece a la presencia de externalidades. La prima diferencial en los ingresos que genera la pertenencia a un segmento, depende a su vez de la concentración de capital humano en el mismo. Este resultado contradice anteriores investigaciones que concluyeron que la tasa social de retorno de la educación era inferior a la respectiva tasa privada. Una implicación inmediata es la urgente revisión de las políticas económicas que pretenden trasladar recursos asignados a la Universidad Pública a la Escuela Primaria.
