New research proves the long held expectation that human 

capital formation (a population’s education and health status) 

plays a significant role in a country’s economic development. 

Better education leads not only to higher individual income but is 

also a necessary (although not always sufficient) precondition for 

long-term economic growth.

Despite an abundance of cross-section, panel, and event studies, there is strikingly little convincing documentation of direct positive impacts of financial opening on the economic welfare levels or growth rates of developing countries.
