I want to compare Eurozone unemployment to the US. The Eurozone (as opposed to the larger European Union of 28 states) has a comparable population and economy to the US, but the two economies could not be more different. The latest jobs report in the US was released on Friday showed the unemployment rate fell to 5.6% translating into 8 million unemployed. The unemployment rate in the Eurozone is 11% and has been above 10% since 2010. There are 18.4 million unemployed. There are 24 million unemployed in the larger EU28. That means there are 10 million more unemployed in the eurozone that in the US. The unemployed in the eurozone are not even distributed. The unemployment rates in Greece, Italy, and Spain are over 23%. There really isn't any partisan point here. The world economy needs Europe, and that means addressing growth and job creation.
