Die endogene Wachstumstheorie und ihr Einfluss auf die Bildung in der Wissensgesellschaft
Recently the argument is raised in political discussions that an increasing productivity could be reached by capital investments in education. The Directive on Services in the Internal Market of the European Commission or the General Agreement on Trade in Services are pushing this process where education is only a kind of tool for reaching a strong European economy without taking into account the challenge of value based European education. In this article we will look critically to the main driver in the ‘economisation’ of education: the theory of economic growth. The economically driven European and world society could be seen as the major reason for this economisation of education.
