Aims to provide an analytical framework investigating the accumulation of human capital in an OLG framework characterized by a continuous interplay between human capital distribution and individual choice of accumulation. This leads to a wide variety of dynamics. Generally, more equal economies tend to accumulate a higher human capital but other cases are possible. The accumulation is characterized by bimodality or multimodality in the human capital distribution and by an endogenous poverty trap.
