Abstract: Human capital is a summary term for the investment in education, training and other qualities which increases the worth of individuals to society generally. Although the importance of different levels of human capital is most evident in the labour market, where differences are often reflected in income, the concept has a wider relevance. Investment in the health of an individual has obvious benefits for society at large, not least with respect to welfare payments, as do the skills and talents which individuals are able to bring to bear in the general fields of leisure and recreation.
