ABSTRACT Este trabajo analiza los efectos de la educación sobre el consumo de determinados bienes que inciden en la salud (en concreto, alcohol y tabaco), que en la literatura económica forman parte de los denominados efectos no monetarios de la educación. El estudio se realiza a partir de los datos de la Encuesta Nacional de Salud de 1997. Los resultados muestran que, contrariamente a los postulados de la teoría del capital humano, los efectos de la educación sobre el consumo de alcohol y tabaco no siempre generan beneficios sobre la salud. Alternativamente, se sugieren interpretaciones de los resultados desde la escuela de pensamiento institucionalista.

    ABSTRACT: A time-specific model of compulsive consumption incorporates the two central characteristics of addiction: that people get hooked through use of addictive commodities and that people often are of two minds, simultaneously wanting to consume an addictive commodity and to avoid it. The paper demonstrates the importance of modeling that stable and bounded human non-constancy that is ruled out by orthodox equilibrium analysis: it induces ‘anti-market’ selling consumption avoidance; it creates consumer conflict and the need for self-control; it implies the possible welfare superiority of blind hedonism over expected utility maximization.

    ABSTRACT: Most studies of the benefits of education focus on market outcomes, particularly labor market returns. But the rewards of education are not limited to success at finding a job and earning money; schooling also affects nonmarket outcomes, such as one's health and the cognitive development of one's children. The authors discuss several nonmarket outcomes of education that have been confirmed by researchers and estimate the value that an additional year of schooling has on some of those outcomes.
