Abstract

This paper attempts to give an overview of the human capital's contribution to the growth of the Algerian economy. The author considers, as a starting point, the work on the endogenous growth provided by the theoretical constributions of Lucas (1988) and Romer (1990) in addition to the empirical results of Benhabib and Speigel (1994), Mankiw, Romer and Weil (1992). In the case of Algeria, the application of a simple augmented Solow model combining the human capital and the workforce (labor) shows the latter variable gives a better explanation to the contribution of the human capital in initiating a sustainable, self-sustaining growth process.
