Abstract

This paper attempts to shed new light on the extent to which college education brings financial returns. It recognizes the existence of a number of variables that are likely to affect the financial returns that education produces for a given person -particularly the student's "ability" and "motivation," and the "quality" of his schooling. It attempts to isolate returns to education from returns to these other related variables.
