Unemployment exists when demand is not sufficient to give jobs to all those seeking work. Therefore to reduce it surely all the government has to do is embark on a massive road building programme? Or maybe have the streets cleaned daily, the post delivered twice daily, reduce class sizes and double up the number of teachers.
Surely it is that easy isn't it?
Increase taxes, use the money to create jobs.
The end of unemployment except for those who are work-shy.
Or is it not that simple?
