Book Description

The Penguin Economist Special reports delve into the most pressing economic issues of the day: from national and global economies, to the impact of trade, industry and jobs. Written to be read on a long commute or in your lunch hour - be better informed in under an hour.



Globalisation and technology are changing the structure of the labour market. Now, companies have the choice to recruit from further afield and without the need for traditional office workers. Matthew Bishop explores how companies can, and will, recruit employees in the future and how individuals can get ahead in this era of change.


Sections include:



The great mismatch



Labour-market trends: Winners and losers



Bottom of the pyramid



Self-help: My big fat career



Free-for-all



Companies' concerns: Got talent?



The role of government: Lending a hand



A better balance: More feast, less famine
