via Education to employment: Getting Europe’s youth into work | McKinsey & Company.

Sadly if you are a millennial or parent of a millennial, you will probably take very little encouragement from this article. The article focuses on opportunities for governments, the EU and reform of education. BUT there is no direct prescription for unemployed millennials.

John Gelmini and myself have discussed the crisis facing the millennials and have concluded that millennials must help themselves, otherwise they will be consigned to remain in the lost-generation of no-hopers.

Any thoughts?

Surely, the reason that there is no consensus on the future course of the UK recovery is because of the absence of strategy from the Coalition Government?

Any thoughts?
