题目: Growth Channels of Human Capital: A Chinese Panel Data Study
 
内容: This paper studies the growth channels of human capital using the provincial level panel data in post-reform China. Specifically, it aims at distinguishing between the “factor-accumulation channel,” whereby human capital augments production as an input factor, and the “productivity channel,” whereby human capital affects output by raising total factor productivity. We establish a new regression model wherein both “factor-accumulation channel” and “productivity channel” are operative. Our system GMM estimation results support the hypothesis that different types of human capital affect economic growth through different channels: Basic human capital contributes to growth via the “factor-accumulation channel” and advanced human capital via the “productivity channel,” both individually and simultaneously. China's rapid economic growth has attracted a growing body of empirical research on studying the role of human capital in China's growth. The findings obtained in our current study can help shed new light on a host of important questions: How can education policies promote economic growth? Does primary/secondary and higher education affect economic growth differently? Should educational policies be elitist or populist? And how should education policies change as an economy develops?
