      With a higher level of education, a person often has more advanced skills that few workers are able to offer, justifying a higher wage. The impact of education on economic inequality is still profound in developed countries and cities [3]. Although there are usually policies of free education in developed nations, levels of education received. Inequality of educational opportunities does not take place solely at the level of higher education.

This chapter discusses some evidence on the economic implications of investments in higher education. Essentially, the empirical evidence supports a positive link between educational investment and economic development. Yet, the effect of higher aggregate investment in education on income inequality is inconclusive.
