Education Policy/Eonomic Growth/Macroeconomics: the relationship between education and economic growth is examined in Wößmann and Piopiunik (2009)(1) and Wößmann (2009)(2). See also the education reports of the German Federal Government.(3)
The discussion is based on macroeconomic models (Wößmann and Piopunik 2009; Hanushek and Wößmann 2007 (4)), which are used to attempt to predict the costs of lack of support and education in the form of lost economic growth.
Macroeconomics: examines educational policy decisions with regard to their economic consequences.
Neoclassical theories: here education is an accumulative production factor (see Human Capital/Economic Theories).
Endogenous growth models: argue with a necessary technical choice: new technological knowledge helps to implement innovations.
Models of technological diffusion: this is not primarily about creating new knowledge, but about implementing new technologies, where learning and understanding are essential prerequisites.
