Cool charts on (un)employment
(Click for interactive chart)
The OECD has made some cool (I agree, it seems ironic when talking about unemployment) charts.
The tool is interactive , and fiddling around you will find some interesting facts.
To start with something we should all know:
* Belgium has the second lowest labour participation rate in the OECD
* Note the difference with Germany, the EU average and for instance the US, Switzerland, Sweden and Norway...
Playing around with these charts does not make me happier about the Belgian economy...
