Intergenerational talent transmission, inequality, and social mobility
Stefan Napel () and
Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 2, 405-409
The paper investigates the effects of intra-family talent transmission when human capital exhibits indivisibilities and parental financing of education involves borrowing constraints. Positive talent correlation reduces social mobility but steady state inequality and macroeconomic history-dependence are not affected.
