Lange, Thomas and Pugh, Geoff (1997) High-tech investment and learning-by-doing: an alternative training strategy. Education + Training, 39 (8) . pp. 316-321. ISSN 0040-0912 (doi:10.1108/00400919710190135)

Abstract

Discusses the impact of high wages and investment strategies in physical and human capital on eastern Germany post unification. Introduces the concept of learning-by-doing as an externality of high quality investment. Provides some eclectic arguments in support of learning-by-doing effects which may be used to partly replace costly, publicly financed vocational training programmes.
