The World's Unemployed Youth: Revolution in the Air?

A common thread to the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt and protests
elsewhere in the Middle East and north Africa is the soul-crushing high

region cannot find jobs. To be sure, protesters were also agitating for
democracy, wanting the full rights of citizenship and not to be treated
as subjects. But nonexistent employment opportunities were the powerful

Today's society is failing to deliver on its promise to young people. We
said that if they worked hard, stayed out of trouble, and attended
school, they would have a prosperous and fulfilling life. It turns out

we were inaccurate, if not dishonest. And then we rub salt in the wound
by saying we're in a "jobless recovery" -- an oxymoron to tens of
millions of young people who are having their hopes dashed.
