about

This volume explores the challenges and the opportunities created by the rapid growth of 'telematics'. European firms benefit through lower labour costs and access to big new markets in the fields of education and training. At the same time European governments are concerned about jobs disappearing. For the developing world, there is the brightest prospect of new jobs and novel means of education. However, how secure will these new jobs be? Will a more highly educated work force lead to a brain drain?

From Our Editors

Drawing on the rapid growth of ‘telematics’ across Europe, this book discusses employment and distance education. With telematics, firms will prosper from lower labour costs and access to big new markets in education and training. Europe and Developing Countries in the Globalized Information Economy also addresses job prospects and security for the developing world and the potential of burnout.
