An Introduction on Gary Becker’s “Human Capital Theories”
Human capital is the stock of habits , knowledge , social and personality attributes including creativity embodied in the ability to perform labour so as to produce economic value. Human capital is unique and differs from any other capital. It is needed companies to achieve goals, develop and remain innovative. Companies can invest in human capital, for example, through education and training, enabling improved levels of quality and production. Human capital theory is closely associated with the study of human resources management, as found in the practice of business administration and macroeconomics. The original idea of human capital can be traced back at least to Adam Smith in the 18th century. As a result of his conceptualization and modeling work using Human Capital as a key factor, the Nobel Prize for Economics was jointly awarded to Paul Romer , who founded the modern innovation-driven approach to understanding economic growth.

Human Capital is Becker's classic study of how investment in an individual's education and training is similar to business investments in equipment. Becker is a pioneer of applying economic analysis to human behavior in such areas as discrimination, marriage, family relations, and education. Becker's research on human capital was considered by the Nobel committee to be his most noteworthy contribution to economics. This expanded edition includes four new chapters, covering recent ideas about human capital, fertility and economic growth, the division of labor, economic considerations within the family, and inequality in earnings. Becker's style of thinking reduces humans to economic entities. Nothing could be further from the truth. Becker gives people credit for having the power to reason and seek out their own best destiny.
