About this title


This two volume collection covers important developments in the theory and empirical analysis of training since the start of the 1990s. It includes the seminal articles on training theory in the context of imperfect markets, which are essential for understanding social interventions in the private market. New analyses of the determinants of training are presented, some incorporating wider perspectives from industrial relations and human resource management. Advances in the methodology for evaluating public training programmes are then covered, with examples of both experimental and non-experimental methods. Finally, the volumes include major studies of the impact of training on workers and organisations, with examples from several different countries.


‘. . . this collection is welcome, both as a guide to recent mainstream research, in both mainstream economics and management science, on employee training, and as a vivid demonstration of the increased range and sophistication of that research.’ Author: Paul Ryan, British Journal of Industrial Relations

‘Francis Green has done a masterly job of selecting the works that are essential for understanding the important tendencies in the economics of training of the last decade.’ Author: Transfer

‘As globalisation extends the impact of the knowledge economy we are also starting to witness the limitations to conventional approaches by the state to increase formal participation in education as a means of enhancing economic growth. In this context the study of skill acquisition or training in the workplace takes on a new importance. Here, Francis Green has provided a major service to scholars in bringing together this collection of papers. Not only does he provide the reader with access to the latest theoretical developments and empirical research in the economics of training but crucially, he locates this in the wider interdisciplinary approach to the role of training within organisations. This is especially important as it is from within this interdisciplinary perspective that we are likely to see the next major advances in our understanding of the part played by training in organisational performance and national competitiveness.’ Author: David Ashton, University of Leicester, UK

‘The collection of papers is highly relevant. It includes seminal contributions both from economics and from industrial relations. This multi-disciplinary approach is much to be welcomed; amongst the familiar jewels are some gems that I would otherwise not have come across. The range of papers is wide, and the volume is as up-to-date as it is possible to be in this fast changing area. The book will be an invaluable companion to all researchers, policymakers and practitioners with interests in the economics of training.’ Author: Geraint Johnes, Lancaster University Management School, UK
