Preferences Over Education Expenditure
This paper investigates the effects on income and its distribution of heterogenous preferences for education expenditures. Models of private and public education are studied and compared. Public education expenditures are determined through majority vote. Equilibria for both models are analytically characterised, with the exception of the endogenous distribution of human capital. These distributions are characterised using simulations. Heterogenous preferences increase income inequality in private education, while public education overcomes this heterogeneity to provide convergence of incomes.
