9781840641554: The Overeducated Worker?: The Economics of Skill Utilization (Elgar Monographs)

It is often suggested in policy debates that the employment of highly educated workers in jobs traditionally held by lower skilled workers leads to skill wastage and a worsening labour market position for the less educated. This process is generally referred to as `bumping down' or `crowding out'. This argument challenges the policy of many developed countries to attach ever greater importance to knowledge as a means to increase international competitiveness. The authors in this book provide insights into the role of education in society by investigating the extent to which these arguments of overeducation and upgrading are valid. They bring together different approaches to obtain a complete picture of the debate in economics about under-utilization of skills and bumping down.

About the Author:

Edited by Lex Borghans, Principal Researcher, Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) and Andries de Grip, Head, Division of Labour Market and Training, ROA and Professor, Department of Economics, Maastricht University, The Netherlands

Review:

'Is more education the key to economic growth or are there already too many educated people to fill the jobs that actually require education? This is the $64 million question in manpower economics. In this book, eighteen authors in six different countries throw new light on the perennial question. The Great Debate about skill utilization will never be the same again.' -- - Mark Blaug, Professor Emeritus, University of London, Professor Emeritus, University of Buckingham, UK and Visiting Professor, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
