Selfish and Social Returns in The Case Against Education

My The Case Against Education (Princeton University Press, 2018), devotes Chapter 5 to education's selfish returns (more commonly known as "private returns") and Chapter 6 to education's social returns. Chapter 7 provides supplemental calculations.

This is where I show my work. Please email me comments, questions, and especially corrections.

Note: Earlier versions of Excel may have a file conversion issue that prevents them from calculating negative rates of return. If any reported returns appear as "#NUM," here's how to fix it.
