"Human Capital is Becker's classic study of the consequences of investing in a person's knowledge and skills. According to his theory, investment in an individual's education and training is similar to business investments in equipment. Becker looks at the economic effects of investment in education on employment and earnings, and shows how his theory measures the incentive for such investment. The human capital approach also allows for for determining the costs and returns from college and highschool education. Another part of the study explores the relation between on-the-job experience, age, and earnings. This edition includes four new chapters, covering recent ideas about human capital, fertility and economic growth, the division of labor, economic considerations within the family, and inequality in earnings"--Cubierta posterior.
