This time just a picture, based on this Eurostat newsflash. For both Finland and the Netherlands, unemployment is ticking upwards. Rather quickly for the Netherlands indeed. And the youth unemployment in Finland is nearly at 20%, and has been for quite some time.
Anyone still convinced this austerity is a good policy? I will get back with some thoughts about a recent post by Ambrose Pritchard-Evans about Dutch debt-bubbles, which I referred to some time ago.
