Title:On human capital formation with exit options : comment and new results PDF Logo
Authors:Poutvaara, Panu
Issue Date:2006
Series/Report no.:CESifo working papers 1648
Abstract:Katz and Rapoport (2005) conclude that with linear production technology and the possibility of unilateral migration, region-specific shocks may increase the average level of education. Previously, Poutvaara (2000) derived a corresponding result with Cobb-Douglas technology and migration which may go in both directions. This paper shows that the exit option may reduce human capital formation with a quadratic production technology.
