Estudios Economicos de Desarrollo Internacional 01/2007; 7(2):53-80.
Source: RePEc

ABSTRACT En este trabajo se presentan varios modelos econométricos con datos de panel internacionales, que ponen de manifiesto el importante impacto positivo y significativo que el capital humano tiene sobre el desarrollo económico, a través del efecto inversión y mediante otros efectos indirectos, e insistimos en la conveniencia de desarrollar políticas de cooperación internacional que impulsen la educación y el desarrollo a nivel mundial y en particular en los países en vías de desarrollo. Otros efectos de nivel y tasa se analizan en el trabajo complementario de Neira(2003).

    ABSTRACT: This paper extends Coe and Helpman's (International R&D spillovers, European Economic Review, 39, 859–887, 1995) study of international R&D spillovers amongst OECD countries by including a general human capital variable which accounts for innovation outside the R&D sector and other aspects of human capital not captured by formal R&D. This results in somewhat smaller coefficient estimates for domestic R&D capital and international R&D spillovers, but they remain highly statistically significant. General human capital is found to affect TFP directly as a factor of production, and as a vehicle for international knowledge transfer associated with productivity catch-up amongst OECD countries. It seems to play a distinct role from R&D in the economic growth processes of these economies.

    ABSTRACT: En este trabajo estudiamos el papel del capital humano como uno de los factores determinantes del crecimiento economico de un pais, para ello consideramos dos variables fundamentales, el nivel educativo alcanzado por la poblacion activa y el gasto en educacion como medida de la calidad de la enseñanza. Se realiza un estudio comparativo, para 118 paises, de ambas variables en el año 90, analizando a su vez los cambios experimentados desde el año 1965. Por ultimo presentamos un modelo econometrico en el que el capital humano, y en concreto la combinacion de las variables nivel educativo de la poblacion y gasto educativo, se considera junto al capital fisico, un factor condicionante del crecimiento economico del conjunto de paises analizados.

    ABSTRACT: We present an analysis of economic growth and cycles in main EU, USA, Japan and other OECD countries during the period 1900-1997, and more detailed data and analysis of main economic aggregates for 25 OECD countries during the period 1964-94, including comparisons of Private and Public Consumption, Investment, External Trade and Population. The economic comparisons have into account both exchange rates and purchasing power parities. Some important aspects of demand and supply are analysed in relation with their influence both on economic growth and cycles. We use exponential rates of growth which are interesting for seeing the important influence that moderation of fertility rates have had in the increase of real GDP by inhabitant in OECD countries in comparison with other areas of the World. OECD countries have been generally advanced in education development and that has been one of the more important factors that explain their good performance during the first and second half of 20th century.
