Daily Maverick - Rhetoric and reality: on labour protection and unemployment

Daily Maverick - Rhetoric and reality: on labour protection and unemployment | Rhetoric & reality | Scoop.it
Linnewho's insight:

"Some suggest that unemployment rates are high because of laziness or a dependency effect created by social grants, but numerous studies have failed to find empirical support for these claims. The one drum of this kind that continues to be beaten is the claim that unemployment is high because wages are too high. On the surface this seems an eminently sensible theory and at extremes it must be true. But unfortunately, that is about as far as 'Economics 101’ gets you."
