Abstract

This study analyses the role of education in economic development in the republics of the former Socialist Bloc and more specifically the impact of human capital on per capita economic growth in transition economies in the Russian Federation, and Ukraine. The factors that are associated with the human capital in terms of education levels are analyzed in order to measure this impact. Our approach is to estimate the significance of educational levels for initiating substantial economic growth. We estimate a system of linear and log-linear equations accounting for different time lags in the possible impact of human capital on economic growth.
