ECON+ is focusing on unemployment, and notably youth unemployment. It’s an issue which has a multitude of causes, and unfortunate consequences. It’s a problem which has persisted over the long-term in many countries and in many it has once again raised it’s ugly head. The youth of today are being labelled ‘a lost generation’. There are however some countries which do not face this problem, or who are starting to overcome it. We’re looking at the global picture, exploring the statistics, the theories and the realities of unemployment hoping to find solutions along the way.
