Eurozone unemployment touched a fresh high in January, as data painted a far from encouraging picture for the 17-nation bloc.
Unemployment in the eurozone rose to a record 11.9pc in January from 11.8pc in December, with nearly 19m people out of work. The Eurostat data agency said


Eurozone unemployment touches fresh high - Telegraph

Can Austerity eventually work?

Have the Politicians any kind of strategy to end this Nightmare?

As Unemployment worsens in the EZ what does this say about the relevance of the Stability Treaty?

Have recent Elections in Italy the potential to make this Mess even harder to clean up??? :|

Despite Brazil's recent bad luck with unemployment the EZ rate is still well over twice Brazil's! :shock2:

Unemployment Rate in Brazil increased to 5.40 percent in January of 2013 from 4.60 percent in December of 2012.

Ireland above average. I'm sure Inda thinks that's a good thing.

In Ireland, who cares about eurozone unemployment?

Irish people are primarily interested in Irish, British, Canadian, US, Australian employment opportunities.

We had a euro currency crisis, it's solved, there is no going back, it is here to stay. It is pretty much fixed.
But we also have a debt and unemployment crisis in the euro, it needs sorting.

It is much higher when you count those who are "disabled" or in some pointless "job training scheme".

As long as Europe distorts the market with huge state-monopolies, high taxes, restrictive practices, barriers to entry including the private sector e.g. legal profession etc. this is how it's gonna stay.

Afraid so; & it aint gonna get much better as long as FFailed policies are being imposed:

"We were shocked some years ago when Catholic theologists explained how a bishop might legitimately mislead on the issue of child abuse. As long as he secretly had a "mental reservation", it was not sinful. How medieval, we thought.

When Ruairi Quinn signed a pledge not to impose student fees, he must have had a mental reservation. When Eamon Gilmore pledged to oppose "Frankfurt's Way", perhaps he too had a mental reservation.

Michael Noonan must have had a mental reservation when he denounced the "disastrous and obscene" policy of forcing citizens to pay the private debts of rich gamblers. Because three months later he became Minister for Finance and has been cheerfully operating that policy ever since.

And when Enda Kenny met the teenage Joanne O'Riordan and made her a promise, well . . .

"Enda Kenny looked me in the eye before the general election," Joanne told the Irish Examiner, "and promised me one thing and then once again, did another." Kenny promised Joanne – who was born without limbs – that there would be no cuts in disability benefits.

Apparently, speaking to this young woman, looking her in the eyes with that sincere expression he uses, making a promise that meant so much to her, he had a mental reservation."
