    national stock of skilled workers

    Dear all,

    "...Just as more individuals invest in their human capital and governments invest in increasing the national stock of skilled workers, ...."

    In the sentence above, what do you think is the meaning of "the national stock of skilled workers"?

    Does it simply mean "domestic skilled workers"?

    Thank you!
