Es sabido que existe una relación positiva entre la experiencia y el nivel educacional y elsalario. No obstante, también influyen en los salarios el talento nato y el capital familiar y social.Frente a esto es que surgen las interrogantes de ¿cuánto del mayor salario de las personaseducadas se debe a que tienen mayor talento nato? y ¿cuánto a que tienen más educación?Asimismo, algunas carreras (por ejemplo, las ingenierías) suelen pagar más que otras (porejemplo, pedagogía y psicología). De nuevo surge la pregunta de si una persona gana más queotra porque estudió cierta carrera o porque esa carrera requiere mayor talento y empuje y, por eso,paga más.
