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

I was talking with my aunt about that. She did not get how is possible that people with good formation be them engineers, architects or anyone with a smart head are unemployed. Move around!!!

As much as I hate the present monetary policy, I must agree that well-trained people unemployment in Spain comes from a lack of desire to move around and take a job in antoher country.

Spain talks endlessly about reforms and reforms .. most fo them are crazy leading Spain to more years of distresss. And of the reforms which are really needed (mainly 3), one will be done more or less properly (privatize cajas and use the government money to give credit), another one in the complete opposite direction of what is required (labor law and pension reform) and the other one is just not talked about (force people to learn english or german or french and move around!!!!.. and then we will pay you heavily if you come back).

xzy stuff.

Spaniards won't even move around within Spain. And, what's saddest, employers won't hire either. I remember a couple of years ago one of our interns had an interview with HR to take a permanent position, and they asked him whether he liked his hometown - it was almost as if it were too much of a risk to hire someone from outside Madrid for fear they would leave to go back home in short order.
