''Education, growth and technology diffusion''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.1 )
 
 
This paper tests the Nelson-Phelps hypothesis with recently developed panel cointegration tests and new cross-country datasets. The empirical results give evidence that all types of education are important for TFP growth and that there is an interaction between education and the distance to the technology frontier. However, the analysis of sub samples of the data indicates that the evidence of the Nelson-Phelps hypothesis is only convincing for developing countries whereas the evidence for developed countries is rather weak.
