Economic Development, Wage Structure and Implicit Insurance on Human Capital
University of Wisconsin - Madison.
1992 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper demonstrates how smaller wage differentials in the developed world are welfare-enhancing by providing implicit insurance on human capital, while larger wage differentials in underdeveloped countries exacerbate the problem of underinvestment in human capital. These results arise in a general equilibrium model when there are no markets to insure against different educational outcomes.
