University of Bayreuth, Department of Economics, Bayreuth, Germany.

2008 (English)In: Economics Letters, ISSN 0165-1765, E-ISSN 1873-7374, Vol. 99, no 2, p. 405-409Article in journal (Refereed) Published

The paper investigates the effects of intra-family talent transmission when human capital exhibits indivisibilities and parental financing of education involves borrowing constraints. Positive talent correlation reduces social mobility but steady state inequality and macroeconomic history-dependence are not affected.
