About the product

This publication presents a discussion on the relationship between inequality in income distribution and growth focusing on one of the possible links - the access to education. It presents a formal model that shows how the imperfection of financial markets makes educational choices dependent on the distribution of family incomes. The publication also offers an empirical analysis of the data collected.
