Does the search for meaning in work matter? and is it even possible to ask such a question against a backdrop of mass youth unemployment, widespread poverty and growing inequality? Drawing on the experience of the Mondragon co-operative movement in Spain and other innovative models of employment and enterprise from around the world, as well as the visions and values derived from his faith, Chris Beales explores how “work” might be humanised and education and employment made not only responsive to what the Economy needs but also purposeful, satisfying and rewarding for people.
