Education and Development

Measuring the Social Benefits

Walter W. McMahon

Education is a key area for knowledge-based, globalizing economies. Economies depend on education not only for the diffusion of knowledge and learning of new techniques, but also for long-term poverty reduction and improved health. This book develops a new approach for measuring the social benefits of education and finding more cost-effective policies.
