GONZALEZ, Claudia. About Building Up Knowledge and Technology. [online]. 2007, n.25, pp.46-51. ISSN 0121-4993.

This article addresses the relationships among technology, knowledge and education. Development models treat factors of production as independent variables, but we believe they are correlated. All are byproducts of the accumulation of knowledge, which is only possible through human capital. Only endogenous technology would affect growth, due to monopoly rents. Exogenous technology becomes information and its effect on growth is minimized through payment of monopoly prices. The educational system in developing countries does not seem to contribute either to knowledge accumulation or greater labor productivity. In Colombia the average rate of GNPgrowth in 30 years has been similar to population growth, while the growth rate of schooling is higher. Finally, we open for debate the relationship between the stock of human capital and the accumulation of knowledge, hoping to contribute to the improvement of efficiency in educational investment.

Palavras-chave : Knowledge Accumulation; endogenous technology; education; philosophy.
