Finally, work is needed on empirical evidence in support of the various hypotheses examined. By the very nature of the issues, this evidence is difficult to gather because it can be obtained only from joint study in depth of the evolution of the structure of earnings and of the demand for schooling in the medium and long run. Such case studies are scarce, so not very much can be done for the moment.

The equilibrium educational policy will then simply reflect the trade-off between costs and benefits as perceived by the elite. Consider first that external integration occurs through trade in goods and services. Where skilled labour and capital are scarce, the economy has a comparative advantage in the good produced with unskilled labour as a specific factor, and domestic prices become independent from domestic supply and demand conditions.
