The author describes how the deficiencies in schooling and education have produced young people world wide who cannot fill the need for the skilled jobs required. He reports how these worker shortages are being creatively overcome world wide by businesses, non governmental organizations and community based organizations working together locally to produce talented workers from the young, poorly educated, people to meet the workforce demands of the future.
The globalization of world economies has produced this demand for skilled workers that schools or shortages of young workers cannot fill at present. The demand to retain retiring, skilled, workers will skyrocket in the future everywhere. The failing economies world wide will force the retirees back to work with employers only too eager to have skilled, experienced, workers to solve their needs. The re-employment will also solve the needs of the retiree to have funds to live on in their extended lives.
This book is an excellent sequel to Gordon's "2010 Meltdown" and is a must read for any business person in any country and also for government leaders making decisions locally, or on a larger scale. This is important for educators to help prepare their strategies creatively for the future education of the workforce that will be in high demand.
The book is superbly researched but still easily read and enjoyably written.
