Human Capital Accumulation in R&D-based Growth Models

Author

  • Claudio, MATTALIA

Abstract

This paper considers a multi-sectoral endogenous growth model, that reproduces the essental aspects of an ‘ICT-based economy’, in which a central role is played by human capital accumulation. Indeed, households also invest in human capital through schooling, and this turns out to be the thrue engine of growth. Furthermore, this model displays no scale effect and the stimulations allow to get interesting results concerning the link between market power and growth, the presence of ‘imbalance effects’ and the consequences of different types of subsidies
