About the publication

This booklet provides a critical appraisal of the relationship between education and employment. The author points out that the problems in this relationship are such that they defy purely technical solutions and have to be seen in the overall context of the political economy of development. He explores the assumptions of different views of development and labour market, namely: (a) the orthodox theory of continuous labour markets, (b) dual labour market theories, (c) and radical/marxist theories (and in particular that of segmented labour markets). He then indicates this "preferred" interpretation of the employment and the role of education in that problem in non-industrialized capitalist countries. In the last chapter he analyses possible alternative solutions to unemployment in capitalist economies within the context of his model.
