Youth Education and Unemployment Problems. An International Perspective.
Gordon, Margaret S.; Trow, Martin
Essays focusing on issues concerning youth education and unemployment problems are presented in this document. It is divided into three general areas. The first, Youth Unemployment in Western Industrial Countries, reviews general dimensions of the problem, the cyclical hypothesis, the demand hypothesis, the supply hypothesis, disaggregating American data, conclusions on causes, policies to combat youth unemployment, and educational policies. The second, Comparative National Experiences, focuses on youth education and unemployment problems in Great Britain, West Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Japan, Mexico, and South Asia. And finally, an essay by Martin Trow, Reflections on Youth Problems and Policies in the U.S., emphasizes aspects of the youth unemployment problem that are relevant particularly to the U.S. He discusses the secondary labor market, the hidden economy, cultural unemployment, types of youth and policies for youth, and types of secondary labor market jobs.
