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 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:19, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
"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)

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)

@Diannaa: the text you removed isn't in the pages you said it was in the edit summaries of  or . What gives? EllenCT (talk) 03:21, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
The one from China Daily in this diff is too-close paraphrasing of the second-last sentence of the first page of the source. The other one has a wrong url in the edit summary, it was from here. Sorry for the mistake. -- Diannaa (talk) 03:32, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Should not the unemployment *rate* be the change in unemployment over a given time? Not absolute unemployment which is what I believe is given as the definition? If I am not mistaken, the "rate" does not include the long term unemployed (which the listed definition would include). Also the BLS web page says people who have not looked for work in x weeks are also not included which also puts a time into the equation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:56, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
