The Death of Human Capital?

Its Failed Promise and How to Renew It in an Age of Disruption

Phillip Brown, Hugh Lauder, and Sin Yi Cheung

  • Demonstrates that the human capital story is one of a failed revolution that requires an alternative approach to education, jobs and income inequalities
  • Redefines human capital in a way that more accurately addresses today's challenges presented by global competition, new technologies, economic inequalities, and national debt
  • Rejects and challenges the conventional wisdom that there is an automatic association between learning and earning
