An apt title and article re. the current crisis in youth unemployment.. 

Robert Boutang's comment, July 4, 2013 5:50 PM
Economist ran a cover story about the ‘generation jobless’ – the global rise of youth unemployment. This is a serious concern that could have long-lasting implications for both the global economy and political stability. This was a generation that had only just arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed in the work environment only to be told there was no place for them. It was a generation determined to make their mark, to make a real difference and they were more than up for the challenge of restoring some sort of global and environmental equilibrium. In this regard they were unlike their predecessors – The depression that accompanies being without work will impact on this generation more than most. Exactly how this will play out – a greater distrust for the ‘institution’ and for national politics to name but two things, is hard to predict. But put yourself in their place and ask how can it not have enormous consequences? Unhappy, disempowered populace – especially one with youth and energy on their side, fuels social revolutions. Add into that volatile mix the connectivity this generation enjoys through social media and you have all the raw ingredients of social upheaval. Generation Jobless’…it is a headline that is chilling in its implications and one that serves as a stark warning to us all.
