Second, collinearity between physical and human capital stocks seriously undermines the ability of educational indicators to display any significance in growth regressions. Third, failure to cope with measurement error and endogeneity produces biased estimates. After dealing with these problems, the neoclassical approach to human capital is strongly supported by the data ...

En troisième lieu, la difficulté à corriger les erreurs de mesure et l’endogénéité introduit des biais dans les estimations. Une fois ces problèmes résolus, il apparaît que les données corroborent largement l’approche néoclassique du capital humain ...
