The effects of economic crisis on young people

Ana Balcão Reis, scientific director of Nova SBE Economics for Education Knowledge Center, was in Fronteiras XXI program (RTP/Fundação Francisco Manuel dos Santos) to express her views on the young people born in the 1980s, who were caught by two economic crisis.

Not even their higher education level compared to previous generations has freed them from unemployment, precarious contracts, and family's financial dependence. Ana Balcão Reis left the message that even so “it’s still worthwhile to be graduated. The probability of having a job increases, with an average salary 40% higher and a lower unemployment rate”. However, “young people, when making their educational choices, in addition to their preference should pay attention to the data available on the current unemployment rate for each area and course”.
