Inequality and Child Human Capital
The ‘Inequality and ... ?’ lecture series is organised by the EIB Institute and Uni.lu (MARS) together with LIS, STATEC, Chambre de Salaries and LISER, with the financial support of the FNR. LISER is a proud partner in helping gather the research community, the private and public sectors and the general public in Luxembourg to discuss concepts of inequality.
Child health is increasingly recognized as a critical form of human capital, but only recently have we begun to understand how valuable it is and how its development could be better supported. This lecture provides an overview of recent work that demonstrates the key role of public insurance in supporting longer-term human capital development and points to improvements in child mental health as an especially important mechanism.
Prof. Janet Currie (Princeton University)
