1. Economic Welfare: Concepts and Measurement

    Economic Welfare: Concepts and Measurement

    Edited by John Creedy
    In conducting a rational analysis of public policy, it is very important to quantify the extent of costs and benefits to individuals resulting from changes in taxes and the price level. Economists seek to provide a money measure of the changing welfare facing different types of individuals. There has been a great deal of research activity in this central area of economics in recent years. Learn More

    This important reference collection – prepared by a leading authority in the field – presents a careful selection of the most important articles and papers in the economics of education. It focuses in particular on the notion of education as investment rather than consumption. This field was pioneered by three American scholars – Jacob Mincer, Gary Becker and Theodore Schultz – who demonstrated that education is indeed a way in which individuals can invest in themselves in the simple sense of incurring financial costs today in order to enhance potential earnings tomorrow. There is a very strong association between education and earnings in the labour markets in both capitalist and communist countries and it is this generalisation that forms the bedrock of the doctrine of education as human capital.
