Resumen

El objetivo de esta investigación es la estimación de las tasas sociales de retorno de la inversión en educación terciaria y su producto -I&D y científicos e ingenieros- en la economía. En la medición de este impacto social, tomamos en cuenta los problemas de endogeneidad, utilizando variables instrumentales. Los instrumentos utilizados son aquéllos sugeridos por Hall y Jones (1999). Los resultados econométricos muestran que las variables de inversión son endógenas al modelo y que los instrumentos representan efectivamente el capital social de las economías. Las tasas sociales de retorno estimadas para las inversiones en I&D, científicos e ingenieros, y en educación terciaria para 70 países están por encima del retorno privado, lo cual justificaría una orientación de las políticas.
