About this book

International competition and skills shortages caused by technological advancement have raised entirely new issues for workers, not least how responsibility is increasingly being transferred to them. This book looks at how workers are expected to survive unstable job market conditions in three locations: the UK, Singapore, and South Korea.

Reviews

“One in all this is a very useful book that allows us to develop many insights into aspects on the functioning of the global economy. … Moore’s book is a higher useful contribution to studies within IPE. … the real achievements of this book is that it opens up a large number of enquiries – both theoretical and empirical – that have either been understated or ignored when looking at wider questions on issues such as globalisation and the global political economy.” (Owen Worth, Global Discourse, Vol. 2 (2), 2011)


'Phoebe Moore makes an important contribution to our understanding of the fundamental changes to International Political Economy over recent years. Her impressive analyses of education policy linked to 'employability' as a means of producing forms of subjectivity that sustain neoliberal reforms even against their economic failures will be critical tools in the hands of scholars, researchers, organizers and activists. Her case studies underscore the convergences occasioned by neoliberal policies even in the contexts of diverse national and cultural experiences. This book makes a compelling case for bringing work, labour, and production 'back in' to the study of International Political Economy.' - Matt Davies, Newcastle University, UK

'This book provides one of the richest and most systematic comparisons of skills revolutions in three countries of east and west. Phoebe Moore reintroduces brilliantly the International Political Economy of Work into the literature on the employability and skills.' - Joohee Lee, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Ewha Womans University, Korea
