The State and Skill Creation: Inevitable Failure?
This chapter explores the practical potentialities for government action in skill creation in the context of contemporary pressures, by examining recent experience in two countries which are historically regarded as the most effective exemplars of detailed state-led systems: France and Sweden. Consideration is given to the Italian approach as a less successful version of the French approach. This leads to some interesting implications. The chapter also looks to the UK where the role of the state has been subject to remarkably frequent change.
