Questions related to Human Capital
I want a study or research that looks at the sustainable development process as the process of preserving and renewing assets of all kinds, namely natural capital, productive capital, human capital and social capital.
Please what is the most appropriate proxy for human capital? Several papers use different variables:
1) labour force participation rate (I am using this but not sure if that will be correct)
2) education enrolment rate
3) education attainment
4) education index (from UNDP)
5) human capital index (from World Bank)
Your constructive discourse are welcomed in addition to referenced articles too.
Thanks in advance,
"Sustainable development can be defined as progress that meets the needs of the present compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Companies that fail to integrate social responsibility into the core of their business miss the opportunities to build organizations with high performance and resilient employees.
Human capital/culture is the fourth pillar of sustainable development since November 17, 2010 when a document is adopted calling on cities and local and regional governments around the world to (a) develop cultural policy and include the cultural dimension in all public policies b) the role of employees/human beings as creators and innovators.
Is it correct to find the partial derivative between endogenous variables?
(For example, is it legitimate to take the partial derivative of the stock of human capital with respect to the stock of physical capital?)
If it is, are there any classic dynamic economics papers that deal with it in this way?
I am working on a global sample and I need articles to support EDUCATION as the proxy for human capital. The best indicator would have been the HUMAN CAPITAL INDEX but I cannot find any global data from 1980 to 2019 the reason I am using SECONDARY SCHOOL ENROLMENT.
So, if you have any articles that I can use to justify using EDUCATION, I will appreciate it if you send them to me for citation.
In humble anticipation, thanks!
If artificial intelligence is implemented for the online mobile banking, can this banking segment be deprived of employing human capital altogether?
More precisely: How much of the stock of physical capital in the USA is owned by Chinese households and vice versa?
Background: I want to calibrate a simple two country model of the USA and China with mobile capital. To do this, I need data on foreign ownership of physical capital (or bilateral foreign direct investment) between the two countries.
In the model I assume that output Y is produced using physical capital K and human capital H with a neoclassical production function, i.e. Y = F(K,H). I need to know how much of the U.S. capital stock K_usa is owned by Chinese households and how much of the capital stock in China K_china is owned by U.S. households.
Many countries accept skilled workers to increase domestic human capital.
To complement this policy, some countries are enthusiastic about accepting study migrants. They provide international students with the education and induce students to remain in the host country after education. International students tend to build a large amount of human capital in order to get a skilled job in the host country or in other foreign countries after education.
Japan has been limiting the job that foreigners can take to the skilled one. However, we made a major change in the immigration policy in 2018. In particular, we redefined the 'skilled' job. Newly-defined skilled jobs include jobs that do not require high skill.
Given a situation where international students can be employed for the job that is not necessary high skill after education, do they still keep an incentive to build large human capital?
They do not have to study hard to get a skilled job. Even if they did not study well, they may be able to get a job formally in Japan if they are ok with the unskilled one!
Any ideas? I wonder if you have seen any analytical models to examine this issue (of course, this problem cannot be solved fully without an empirical investigation.)
I'm doing my research on the impact of microcredit on the sustainable livelihood of clients. I tend to measure this livelihood through the five capital assets of sustainable livelihood, namely physical capital, human capital, social capital, financial capital, and natural capital.
can you all suggest to me how and what statistics would be apporopriate for me to use in this research?
I´m writing my bachelors thesis and originally wanted to study the effect of tuition fees on socioeconomic/intergenerational mobility. I couldn´t find any suitable theory so I´ll have to figure out a new subject.
I´v now thought about the following themes and would be extremely thankful for recommendations on theory or another interesting subject/viewpoint.
- The effect of an additional year of schooling on intergenerational mobility; the relations theory and actualization during years 19XX-20XX. (I`ve found a dataset for mobility and would like to use STATA or R for the empirical chapters)
- The effect of compulsory secondary/upper secondary education on intergenerational mobility
- Interrupted work careers and subsequent earnings; gender earnings gap
- The obligations/binding nature of unemployment benefits and its effect on the employment rate( comparing Finland, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Denmark. Obligations on a scale from 1-5)
I`ve studied each subject, but am most familiar with economics of education and social/socioeconomic/intergenerational -mobility.
I don't quite understand what exactly they did. How do you actually add a random error component to predicted household income?

Dear Experts in this area, Could you please add your valuable comments and opinions regarding this matter?
Thank You in Advance
Education is often seen as an important instrument for civilization and for the building of human capital for development. But there is also criticism. Bryan Kaplan has written a book called ‘The case against Education’ (2018) in which he states that the function of education is to signal good qualities of students and certify one’s intelligence and that it is not to enhance one’s skills. Is that what education really does? Are there other claims against education or are the pro’s much greater?
Are there other sources or books where claims are made against education?
1)in literature perceived employability has been variously defined. Fugate et al. (2004) model has latent dimensions Human and social Capital. Adaptability and Career identity.
2)Direnzo, et al (2015) define career capital comprising of Human, Social and Psychological Capital. (antecedents).
which one is formative and which one is reflective.
3) in article," The undergraduate self-perception of employability: human capital, careers advice, and career ownership .William E. Donald, Yehuda Baruch and Melanie Ashleigh "
perceived employability is impacted by human capital, which incorporates social capital, cultural capital, psychological capital, scholastic capital, market-value capital, and skills.
(making it a formative model)

In its draft, the report concludes that global value chains can continue to support growth, create better job opportunities and reduce poverty rates, provided that developing countries implement deeper reforms, and that industrialized countries pursue open, inclusive, and pre-defined policies. Most importantly, if countries fail to invest in human capital, they may end up in the middle income trap and then fall behind from the next stage of development. Evidence also suggests that technological changes will likely be a blessing more than a curse on trade and global value chains. The benefits of sharing global value chains can be widely and sustainable shared if all countries support social and environmental protection.
I'm trying to find the relationship between innovation and economic growth among different countries in one year (Cross-section)
The dependent variable is GDP growth per capita
independent variables are no.of patents per capita- no. of trademarks per capita- R&D expenditure and HCI (human capital index as a control variable).
My question is should I keep the values of the independent variable for the year or should include them as the difference between current and previous year(%)?
- Also is it logical to take the percenatge of an Index (in the case of HCI)?
I am analyzing the effect of human capital on portfolio investment with "institutions" as moderator using a GMM method (panel data of 50 countries). I find that individually, human capital and institutions are positively related to portfolio investment. However, interaction between institutions and human capital is negatively related to portfolio investment. In conclusion, this means that as human capital increases countries with lower institutional quality attract more portfolio investment. Am I right in saying? If right, can this conclusion hold?
May investment in human capital or HR policies of organisations be helpful in predicting default or insolvency?
I am trying to examine the effect of Inflation threshold on economic growth. Where Real GDP growth rate is use as proxy for economic growth. The vector of explanatory variables includes: net Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in GDP, active population growth rate, trade openness, Growth rate of government expenditure, Human capital index and Financial Development
(broad money represented by the M3 monetary aggregate to nominal GDP). In this regard despite it is not a necessary condition; but thought fit to test for unit roots. Thus, I discovered that dependent variable is I(0) and all the independent variables are I(1). My question is; should I go head with the ARDL approach?
Is the significance of human capital changing due to the ongoing fourth technological revolution known as Industry 4.0? Can the role of human capital decrease in the perspective of the next 20-30 years due to the development of Information Technology Industry 4.0? How will the labor market change? Will robotics change the labor market by reducing jobs for people? Will new kinds of professions and jobs for people be created?
The current technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0, is determined by the development of the following technologies of advanced information processing: Big Data database technologies, cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Business Intelligence and other advanced data mining technologies. How will the current technological revolution Industry 4.0 change the labor market in the next 20-30 years?
Some analyzes of the prospects for the development of labor markets suggest that due to the development of information technology Industry 4.0 in 2030, 70 percent. professions and workplaces will be new types of professions, specializations, etc. in the scope of work performed by people, whose names we do not know yet.
Will new types of professions and workplaces for people be created in connection with the development of Information Technology Industry 4.0, which will be a kind of buffer for the reduction of other jobs due to progressive robotization, implementation of artificial intelligence, Internet of Things to the processes of production of goods?
I invite you to the discussion
Thank you very much
There is need know the impact of extension services like advisory, diagnostic, transfer of technology, etc. on the farmers' livelihood (physical capital, social capital, human capital, financial capital, and social capital). So please suggest any model to study the impact.
How far a country can change its ranking by changing its human capital scores? What would happen if a country made such drastic policy changes as to change its scores on human capital to be the best among all the economies covered by the WEF competitiveness report, all other things remaining constant?
And what would happen if the education and training system collapsed to the level of the worst country in the world? Which indicators we can use proxy to human capital ?
Is this way examine the role of human capital in enhancing GCI ?
thanks for cooperation

The problem topic is a shortage of talent in the insurance industry where leaders are trying to develop “human capital”protocol and a talent pipeline. A novel method being used for the first time is a new paid on the job learning program. Exploratory in nature and small in sample size I wish to utilize phenomenology to research the lived experience of the new apprentices. I have elected the approach because I want to understand their experience in depth and what it means to them - possibly providing implications for future employment development/recruitment/retention/engagemen. I started thinking Husserl underpinnings fit but now lean towards Heidegger due to interpretation but am having trouble reconciling the ontological ramifications on my actual interview questions. And, by askin questions pertaining to perceived motivation in situations am I leading participants too much?

- Updating strategic moves
- Common setting of terms and cooperation rules
- Cooperative interactions
- Mutual communication
- Appropriate combination of resources
- Human capital
- Evaluation of progress and results of cooperation

Dear ResearchGate Members,
As a PhD Scholar, i am researching on the issue of creativity indicators in advertising industry by mainly considering the developing nations.

I would like to know if their has been any worthy work on this research problem. How should i take my study further ?
The RBV argues that mostly firm specific resources contribute to sustained competitive advantage. At the same time, I have the impression that which resources matter depend on the context. I am analyzing startups in Nairobi and what firm specific resources successful startups have. I have the impression that for example having knowledge about bureaucratic structures (a human capital resource) is resource that has higher importance in Nairobi then for example in many developed countries.
These factors in general may be divided into traditional (land, labor, capital) and modern (information, knowledge, human capital). Also other classifications are possible, and some new factors of localization could be proposed.

When explaining the determinants of salary (or employment) of individuals, tradicional Mincer's models include "age", "number of years of formal education" and "experience in labor market" as the most relevant explanatory variables of income or success in the labour market.
But this leaves aside the health variables as part of human capital concept. In addition, they leave aside some mental health variables (or characters) without which the academic or "labor market" outcomes could never be achieved.
So, is mental health feasable to incorporate as an additional explanatory variable in an econometric model of salary (or employment level)?

Many studies have investigated the relationship between human capital (intellectual capital and social capital in general) and the performance of firms. Few studies have examined the stock market reaction to announcements of the human capital of the Board of Directors (previous professional experience, age, educational level, relational network etc.).
