Gary S. Becker on Education Policy - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 513
Education Policy/Becker: Theoretically and also practically significant was the distinction made by Becker (1962)(1) and Oi (1962)(2) between general and special education or specific knowledge. Company-specific knowledge is only useful for the company in which it is acquired.
This explained why it is rather unlikely that employees with highly specialised knowledge will change their employer. It also explains why most promotions take place within a company and less through new hires.
