May 2012Human Capital, Economic Growth, and Inequality in China
with James J. Heckman: w18100
China’s rapid growth was fueled by substantial physical capital investments applied to a large stock of medium skilled labor acquired before economic reforms began. As development proceeded, the demand for high skilled labor has grown, and, in the past decade, China has made substantial investments in producing it.

China’s growth will be fostered by expanding access to all levels of education, reducing impediments to labor mobility, and expanding the private sector.
