The Economics, Technology and Neuroscience of Human Capability Formation

James Heckman

No 13195, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: This paper begins the synthesis of two currently unrelated literatures: the human capital approach to health economics and the economics of cognitive and noncognitive skill formation. A lifecycle investment framework is the foundation for understanding the origins of human inequality and for devising policies to reduce it.
