The real tragedy of Europe

This is a slightly more comprehensive chart than the one I used at the start of my post The European Disaster Story.

Spain's adult unemployment rate is now the same as the unemployment rate in the United States in 1933 at the height of the Great Depression. Greece will be at the same level or worse very soon. What a terrible waste of human life and potential.

This is the real tragedy of Europe.
