Title
  • Adult longevity and economic take-off : from Malthus to Ben-Porath
Author
  • David, DE LA CROIX
Physical Description
  • preprint
Notes
  • We propose four arguments favoring the idea that medical effectiveness, adult longevity and height started to increase in Europe before the industrial revolution. This may have prompted households to increase their investment in human skills as a response to longer lives and initiated the transition from stagnation to growth.
