The paper focuses on Pakistan, which has over the years invested substantially to improve the educational attainment of the labor force and to raise productivity but yet still faces declining real output and slow economic growth. The study observes that this puzzle is attributable to labor market distortions, benefit captured syndrome, industrial dispute and job discontinuities as well as leakages in the Pakistani society such as brain drain, among others. The paper further suggests the improvement of the education system, appropriate pricing of teachers’ labor and prevention of industrial disputes in order to upgrade and internalize the contributions of educational capital to economic growth in Pakistan.
