Why I’m Worried About Youth Unemployment

I always welcome a healthy debate. It’s part of our American culture, our political system and our media landscape.

Earlier in June, I wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal entitled “Why Young People Can’t Find Work.” The next day, Derek Thompson, an editor from The Atlantic, posted a rebuttal entitled “The Real Reason Young People Can’t Find Jobs.” I appreciate the fact that Thompson is engaging on this issue, so I wrote a response to his rebuttal titled “Why I’m worried about Youth Unemployment” which CNBC posted today. The CNBC post includes my response to Thompson as well as links to my original WSJ article and Thompson’s rebuttal.
