Early work was focussed on the returns of education in different country settings, leading to the documentation of certain patterns like the diminishing profitability of investment in education by increasing level of education and per capita income. In the mid-1970s, my interest shifted to the role of education as a determinant of earnings and income distribution. I have also studied related topics such as the elasticity of substitution between different types of educated labour, the screening hypothesis, and labour market segmentation.
The empirical emphasis of my work has been in LDC labour markets. My recent work concentrates on the development of analytical tools and the derivation of empirical signals that may guide policy-makers in developing countries to make investment decisions in education conducive to economic growth and social equity.
