How is human resource different from other resources like land and physical capital?
Answer:
Human resource is different in the following ways:

  • Land and other resources are specified, fixed or limited but human resources can be nurtured through education and health.
  • Human resource can bring change in other resources, while other resources cannot change or affect human resource.
  • Human resource can make use of land and capital. Land and capital cannot become useful on its own.
