Re: The fresh morning brings dew and coolness

Just a small note regarding the originator of human capital theory in modern
times.  That was, if truth be told, the late Theodore W.  Schultz, who won the
Nobel for it in 1979, and could be said to have been one of the authors of our
Green Revolution (Transforming Traditional Agriculture, Chicago, 1964).  He was
President of the American Economic Association was as early as 1960, where his
presidential address was titled "Investment in Human Capital.

I feel confident that Professor Amartya Sen would not be reluctant to give
Schultz this recognition.  SR.
