Institutions and the allocation of talent: evidence from Russian Regions-Michael Alexeev (美国印第安纳大学)

主  题:Institutions and the allocation of talent: evidence from Russian Regions

内容概况:主要是关于制度和机构如何影响俄罗斯青年人才的职业选择,演讲人建构了一个理论模型,并基于俄罗斯2011-2014年的微观数据进行实证检验。Strong institutions attract talent to productive activities, whereas weak ones raise the appeal of redistribution and rent-seeking. We propose a theory that describes the impact of institutions on occupational choices and shows that more talented individuals are particularly sensitive in their career choices to the quality of institutions. To test these predictions empirically, we use a unique micro data set describing the choices of fields of studies by newly enrolled university students in Russian regions in 2011-2014. We show that the popularity of sciences and engineering among Russia's youth with higher ability as measured by the United State Examination scores increases in the quality of regional investment climate, whereas for law and public administration this relationship is negative. This confirms that investments in human capital reflect the quality of institutions, pointing to a mechanism connecting institutions to economic outcomes.
