dc.description.abstractUsing micro data on women in the Czech Republic, we compare returns to various measuresof human capital at the end of communism (1989), in mid-transition (1996) and in late/posttransition(2002). We show: dramatic increases in returns to education from 1989 to 1996 butno change from 1996 to 2002; no differences in returns to education by state vs. privatelyownedfirms; ?sheepskin? effects in both regimes, which rise over time and are similar acrossfirm ownership; no difference in returns to education obtained during communism vs.transition; no change in wage-experience profiles over time; and similar increases in returnsto education for women and men. In sum, markets pay women and men equally more fortheir human capital than the planners did; all the adjustment occurred in early transition andwas driven by market forces rather than private ownership.en_US
