Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In John Thornhill's article about France's economy ("Why France may find its social model exacts too high a price"), the accompanying graph about youth unemployment incorrectly states that the 22% refers to the percentage of young people that are unemployed, when it is in fact the percentage of the active young population. The two are quite different concepts, as your colleague Simon Briscoe pointed out in a very explicit graph published on 20 April 2006 and attached to this message.

[insert graph]

I hope you will be able to publish a corrected version of that graph.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
