A Study of Inter-Relationships between Education, Manpower and Economy.
LeVasseur, Paul M.
The model considered in this paper, the G.A.M.E. Educational Planning Model, provides a means of studying the interrelationships among education, manpower, and the economy. The model was originally constructed for use at the Training Seminar, Global Accounts for Manpower and Education (G.A.M.E.), held in Dublin, Ireland, September 4-20, 1967. Designed to quantify certain structural relationships within and among these systems, the model can be used in a manner which closely approximates the way in which planning is carried out in practice. The model is designed to analyze various planning decisions in terms of their consistency, and, in cases in which dysfunctions are discovered, it can be used in an iterative manner to arrive at mutually consistent and balanced plans. The model considers three separate systems: the Educational System, the Manpower System, and the Inter-industry System. The body of the paper is concerned with a qualitative description of the model, while the mathematical description of the model is contained in an appendix. (hw)
