Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr Anup K Das on September 16, 2014
Format: Paperback
Recent publication of the World Bank titled World Development Report 2013: Jobs started a debate on “skills or jobs – what comes first?” The report emphasizes on “Jobs need skills, pull skills, and build skills”. It goes on saying “Employment opportunities increase the demand for education, which systems then have to meet. The role of policy here is to ensure that signals are adequately transmitted, providing incentives to continue skill accumulation by the young and those of working age alike… In India, informing rural women about job opportunities led to increased schooling for girls and delayed marriage and childbearing for women. On the other hand, privilege in access to jobs distorts the signals. It hurts and discourages, rather than encourages, the building of skills.”

By Dr. Dieter Unverzagt on November 26, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is an analytical and narrative report with a global view and very informative examples of countries and regions. It not only searches for reasons for the development in recent years but also suggests an array of strategies and actions to be taken in the years ahead.
