Absolute Risk Aversion and the Returns to Education.
Brunello, Giorgio
Economics of Education Review, v21 n6 p635-40 Dec 2002
Uses 1995 Italian household income and wealth survey to measure individual absolute risk aversion of 1,583 married Italian male household heads. Uses this measure as an instrument for attained education in a standard-log earnings equation. Finds that the IV estimate of the marginal return to schooling is much higher than the ordinary least squares (OLS) estimate. (PKP)
