Leadership Activities and Future Earnings: Is There a Causal Relation?

Journal of Human Capital, 2015, vol. 9, issue 1, 45 - 63

Abstract: This paper revisits the effect of high school leadership activities on young men's earnings. Using several data sets and extending a recently developed econometric technique, we show that even a small amount of selection on unobservables explains the entire high school leadership effect on earnings. We also show that the use of observables to address nonrandom selection bias may yield misleading results if the fixed effects are not dealt with properly.
