Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine the rewards to full-time, male faculty at American universities in two fields: economics and education. A regression equation is used to estimate the relative and absolute returns to particular skills as of the 1972-73 academic year. A method is then given for quantifying the lifetime returns to publication, net of monetary benefits external to the university. Publishers are more highly rewarded than their unpublished colleagues in both disciplines. Economists receive slightly greater remuneration for such activity than do those in education. Diminishing returns set in more rapidly for articles than for books. Outstanding teaching does not appear to be rewarded in either field, while on the other hand public service and administrative skills do command a return.
