NBER WP 15339 ‘How large are returns to schooling? Hint: Money isn't everything’
‘ Experiences and skills acquired in school reverberate throughout life, not just through higher earnings. Schooling also affects the degree one enjoys work and the likelihood of being unemployed. It leads individuals to make better decisions about health, marriage, and parenting. It also improves patience, making individuals more goal-oriented and less likely to engage in risky behavior. Schooling improves trust and social interaction, and may offer substantial consumption value to some students’.
‘ non-pecuniary returns to schooling are at least as large as pecuniary ones’.
