Upgrading Workers' Skills Not Sufficient to Jump-Start Rural Economy.
Teixeira, Ruy A.; Mishel, Lawrence
Rural Development Perspectives, v7 n3 p19-24 Jun-Sep 1991
Questions "supply-push" theory of rural development, which suggests that upgrading workers' skills will guarantee rural development. Data from past two decades show tendency of decreasing growth in job skills and in requirement for quantifiable job skills (e.g., level of education). Upgrading job skills by itself seems unlikely to pay off because labor demand is limited in rural areas. (KS)
