Il ruolo dei "policy-makers" nell'affrontare la disoccupazione giovanile

Youth is paying more than anyone else for something it is not responsible for, i.e. the crisis. In all aspects, the crisis is hitting hard young Europeans, not only in terms of unemployment. Budgets are slashed transversally, bot at the national and the EU level, not only shrinking investments but also decreasing drastically the quality of services to the citizens. Cuts in education and research are the most evident: what should be taken by policy-makers as a potential asset, is treated instead as an "externality" to be cut. This triggers a kind of vicious circle in the European economy. Training and education must be dealt with as a number one priority.
