Center for Economic Policy [Princeton University] Working Paper: “To Borrow or Not to Borrow? An Analysis of University Leverage Decisions,” by Harvey S. Rosen and Alexander J.W. Sappington (Working Paper No. 249, January 2016, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

This paper investigates the decisions of universities to issue debt. We test whether the expected value and uncertainty of a university’s nonfinancial income (the income generated by sources other than its endowment) affect its leverage (the ratio of the value of an institution’s liabilities to the value of its assets). We find that leverage is negatively related to both the expected value and the uncertainty of nonfinancial income. On average, increasing the expected value of nonfinancial income by one standard deviation decreases a university’s debt by about $5.1 million, while increasing the uncertainty of nonfinancial income by one standard deviation decreases debt by about $2.7 million. This behavior is consistent with the pecking order theory of capital structure, which posits that managersdeplete available internal funds before issuing debt. We also show that the leverage decisions of universities have become less sensitive to expected nonfinancial income but more sensitive to its uncertainty since the Great Recession

US Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Net Investment and Stocks of Human Capital in the United States, 1975-2013,” by Michael S. Christian (WP2016-1, January 2016, .pdf format, 55p.).

Abstract:

This study continues the research initiated in Christian (2010, 2014) on measurement of human capital stocks and investment in the United States. It measures a series of human capital stock and net investment from 1975 to 2013, using the lifetime earnings approach of Jorgenson and Fraumeni (1989, 1992). The series decomposes net investment into investment from births, investment in education net of aging of persons enrolled in school, depreciation from aging of persons not enrolled in school, depreciation from deaths, and a residual term that includes net migration and measurement error. The study also discusses the cost-based approach of measurement in human capital of Kendrick (1976), compares investment in education between the cost and income approaches, and describes the necessary steps for producing a cost-based series of human capital in the United States.
