Abstract


Under the condition of the market economy, the factors of human capital are very important to earning inequality, therefore overseas scholars in the domain of labor economy have conducted the thorough research on the relationship between the factors of human capital and earning inequality, and have established a whole set of income distribution theory based on human capital; domestic scholars also pay attention to this relationship and have made abundant research results. Furthermore, our government also devotes to improve earning inequality by promoting education development and realizing education fair. Under theoretical and practical background above, this paper focuses on the relationship between the factors of human capital and earning inequality.This paper systematically elaborates the intrinsic logic relationships among human capital attainment, human capital distribution and earning inequality, and constructs a analysis frame to research the relationship between the factors of human capital and earning inequality by introducing the concept of human capital distribution. Based on the collected massive data, this paper calculates time-series data from 1978 to 2005 and panel data from 1990 to 2005 of human capital attainment, human capital distribution and earning inequality in our country, and researches the main influence factors of human capital distribution inequality and earning inequality in our country by means of Theil Index.In research technique, to consider our country’s overall situation and regional disparity simultaneously, this paper uses time-series data and panel data to carry on the regression analysis of the relationship between the factors of human capital and earning inequality in our country; to avoid sparious regression, this paper tries to use VECM to carry on the regression analysis of time-series data; to reflected our country’s regional disparity, this paper tries to use SUR to carry on the regression analysis of panel data.The main conclusions are as follow: The relationship between the factors of human capital and earning inequality in our country is robust, and the factors of human capital are important to earning inequality. The relationships between human capital attainment and earning inequality, between human capital distribution and earning inequality are both inverted U-shaped curvilinear curves; but in different stages and different areas ? the relationships above possibly have different manifestations. At present our country is in the initial stage of education development, and the rising of human capital attainment can’t improve earning inequality; only when education develops to a higher stage, the rising of human capital attainment will improve earning inequality, therefore we should promote education development vigorously. The improvement of human capital distribution inequality can improve earning inequality in our country, therefore we should pay more attention to realize education fair when improving earning inequality. The whole affection of the factors of human capital to earning inequality in our country is the worsening affection, but the worsening affection above is improving along with the passage of time.
