Nobel Perspectives: Does Europe Betray the Young?

An Insight into Youth Employment Post-Brexit

As part of the UBS Nobel Perspectives series, we take a look at how Europe often neglects the younger generation. Recent market failure has led to a drop in supply and demand and this has had a huge impact on job creation, with youth unemployment in some countries nearly as high as 50%.

Nobel Laureates including Edmund S. Phelps, Sir Christopher A. Pissarides, Robert F. Engle, Daniel L. McFadden and Eric S. Maskin examine the European project and assess the fallout from Britain’s seismic decision to leave the Union.

UBS Nobel Perspectives explore the questions that shape our world. A sound grasp of the markets is enough for many firms, but UBS wants to go further, digging deeper into the theories that underpin modern economies and the lives of the people who developed them. That’s why we’ve interviewed dozens of Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences – to discover more about their extraordinary work, and the experiences that made them who they are.
