DE­SPON­DENT YOUTH

Finweek English Edition - - FEEDBACK - NDODO SHEZI

WRITES ON FINWEEK.COM: My view on this topic ( Young, black and an­gry: Lit­tle hope for mil­lions) is that the state is com­pla­cent when it comes to im­ple­ment­ing pro­grammes that will ad­dress youth un­em­ploy­ment.

Un­for­tu­nately, global ad­vance­ments also make the un­em­ployed in mostly un­der­de­vel­oped coun­tries fall deeper and deeper into poverty, and make it dif­fi­cult for them to catch up with their peers in the de­vel­oped world.

A com­bi­na­tion of poor poli­cies and com­pla­cency among the well-off in find­ing so­lu­tions is cre­at­ing a stage for the gen­er­a­tion of a de­spon­dent youth who are prone to re­act in a very neg­a­tive way in the not­too-dis­tant fu­ture.
