Abstract

This essay review analyzes The Global Auction: The Broken Promises of Education, Jobs, and Incomes by Phillip Brown, Hugh Lauder, and David Ashton. The book argues that technological changes and business trends have facilitated deskilling and marginalization of workers, fostering a worldwide economic race to the bottom and raising the intensity of high-pressure competition for individuals and nations alike.
