    Podemos’ economic policy signals a new model of prosperity but it could - and should - go further

    "Without growth and with work increasingly computerised and automated, workers become redundant.

    Esteemed author Steven Pressman breaks down the true meaning of unemployment statistics

     "One reason for the drop in the U.S. unemployment rate over the past few years is that many people gave up looking for work because they felt that there was no chance they would be able to get a job," said Pressman. "This is typical during any recession. When the labor market and the economy improve, and when people think they have a good chance of getting a job, they re-enter the labor market."

    Pressman gives a sobering account of what the unemployment numbers really mean.
