Preparing for the 21st century economy
After 30 years of university teaching and almost five years as a Reserve Bank president, Anthony M. Santomero knows the importance of education to a well-functioning economy. In recent years, he has seen several broad, long-term trends emerge-trends that will undoubtedly shape our environment and our economic fortunes. In "Preparing for the 21st Century Economy," he talks about two trends he deems to be of particular importance. First is the steady increase in international trade that has spilled over from the second half of the 20th century into the new millennium. Second is the revolution in information and communications technology that has spurred productivity and spawned a need for knowledge workers.
