Given that unemployed workers can default on their education loans, skilled individuals with a larger debt burden prefer riskier but better paid careers than is socially desirable. A higher level of employment risk in turn depresses the skill premium and the incentives to invest in education. The equilibrium allocation is characterized by too low employment, underinvestment by the poor, and too little investment in skill-intensive technologies. A public education system funded by graduate taxes can restore efficiency, and it would also reduce wage inequality.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-11-16T09:49:47Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-11-16T09:49:47Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Zink, Stefan</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Human capital investment with competitive labor search</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Kaas, Leo</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: European Economic Review ; 55 (2011), 4. - S. 520-534</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Zink, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kaas, Leo</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
