Economy, Work, and Education: Critical Connections. Routledge Advances in Management and Business Studies
Casey, Catherine
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
"Economy, Work and Education: Critical Connections" addresses effects of neoliberal capitalism in particular regard to work and education. The book elaborates key aspects and problems of generalized policy models of knowledge-based economies and learning societies in contexts of liberalized firm action, accelerated competitiveness and labor market flexibility. It discusses limits and paradoxes of higher skilled, knowledge-based economies which include significant disparities in labor market absorption of higher level skills, a deterioration of qualitative conditions of work and a re-subordination of workers. This volume provides a research-intensive crossing of these fields to contribute a closer disciplinary and scholarly dialogue between interested thinkers across fields who too often must labor and converse apart. It offers the vantage point afforded by traversing old boundaries and exploring concerns shared by many scholars and researchers in international circles in pursuit of social and cultural innovation in the governance of work and education and advancing wider social debate. Contained are the following chapters: (1)Critical Reflections on Economy and Society; (2) A Liberal Economy of Knowledge; (3) Work Now: The Forces of Production; (4) A New Economy for Education; (5) Labour Markets, Organizations and the Utility of Education; (6) Critical Dilemmas for Work, Education and Workers; and (7) Citizens and Society, Work and Education.
