There is an additional discussion of the deleted graph at [1] and the subsequent section. EllenCT (talk) 01:25, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

technology[edit]

The word technology appears only once in this entire article. I think it goes without saying the relationship between technology and unemployment deserves its own section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.84.68.252 (talk) 01:19, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

hidden unemployment?[edit]

"Official statistics often underestimate unemployment rates because of hidden unemployment" remove, or clarify and source.

Add the following:

"these statistics almost surely undercount the number of unemployed, particularly as some governments like theUnited States consciously under- estimate unemployment (Goolsbee 2003)

Matching[edit]

In modern macroeconomics, unemployment (i.e., the labor market in general) is explained with a search-and-matching model as developed by Diamond, Mortensen, and Pissarides (see, for instance, the New Keynesian DSGE model by Blanchard and Galí). The three were awarded the 2010 Nobel Price in Economics, which underlines that this approach is now mainstream in economics. Why is it, that this article does not mention this approach? --bender235 (talk) 18:58, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
