Lane Kenworthy on The Trouble With Male Unemployment

In an article for Foreign Affairs, Lane Kenworthy of the UCSD Sociology Department writes about The Trouble With Male Unemployment. He explains how the employment rate among prime working-age men has been falling fro nearly half a century and described this problem as catastrophic and urgent. In the article, he aims to answer the question what caused the crisis? and claims that benefit-cutting won’t help.

This article is only part one of a two-part series. Read Part two here, which examines the US’ employment performance in recent years.
