AbstractTo understand what the future requirements of education are to be, one must examine education from a new perspective. One of the keys in understanding that the challenge facing education is recognizing that it is, in fact, a tool of the industrial world and is therefore tied to its capitalistic economic vision. The vision for the future is one in which the new world order is based on an age of ideas and information. Institutions of education have, over the years, evolved and emerged as the primary force in the transmittal of ideas. In this process of transmittal, it assigns value to those ideas which further the interest, goals, and means of western economics (capitalism). Future policy issues should address global economic concerns. Education must take into consideration the role that economics plays in the development of its curriculum. Furthermore, it must assume a position of leadership in the information age, where the validity of ideas will drive economy.
