This text provides an integrated treatment of the relationship between political economy and vocational education at the beginning of the 21st century. It provides a comprehensive, integrated treatment of the relationship between the aims of economic activity and those of education. Approaching the subject from a philosophical perspective, the author engages with debates about: the work-related aims of education; the moral and spiritual significance of work; the conceptualization of political economy; high-skill economies and vocational education; the "end of work" thesis; the relationship between education and training in vocational education; future work patterns; and the educational consequences of the economic theories of influential economists such as Smith, Mill, List, Marx, Marshall and Keynes. The text aims to be of interest to academics and students of business studies, economics, political economy, the sociology of work, and the development of vocational education and training.
