An increasing number of young people in Europe are neither working, nor in school nor being trained. This bodes ill for the socio-economic future of the Continent.

Bloomberg reports that “The problem isn’t only that they are currently without a job. They ‘face a permanent disadvantage on the labor market,’according to Guntram Wolff, director of the Brussels-based policy group Bruegel. ‘They will never be as productive as people who have a normal start.”’
