    Nice colors but what is the significance of each color?

  2. H B Bear says:

    Don’t worry about the details. Feel the vibe.

  3. Tim Neilson says:

    Unemployment in Scotland is 4% or less?

  4. Up The Workers! says:

    Employment?

    It’s all Greek to them!

  5. Up The Workers! says:

    Hey Spartacus…about time you gave the rellos a nudge and found them jobs.

  6. Big_Nambas says:

    Actually Green is 4 to 8%. Bellow 4% is white (non-existent)

  7. H B Bear says:

    If you stop working in the North you freeze or starve to death. That has always been a big motivator across human history.

  8. Tim Neilson says:

    Thanks B-N. I’m actually surprised it’s even as low as 8%, but that’s less unbelievable than I’d thought.

  9. mareeS says:

    That’s’ a pretty awful employment statistic in Spain, Italy and Greece. And Malta etc.

    Might it have something to do with proximity to the other shores of the Mediterranean, consanguinity with places that have a very low IQ, all those things you are not permitted to say in the West?

  10. egg_ says:

    Karma – the grun Finns to the North got it in the neck, too.

  11. John Mc says:

    Bit of a flip with Portugal, the traditional basket case, now doing better than Spain. At least in the employment stakes.

  12. Libby Zee says:

    Finns to the North got it in the neck

    Once you get away from Helsinki, the rest of Finland is a bit sparse.

  13. Snoopy says:

    The unemployment rate in Greece is far worse than Turkey, yet migrants are moving from Turkey to Greece. Why is that?

  14. egg_ says:

    Once you get away from Helsinki, the rest of Finland is a bit sparse.

    Yet, things change across an arbitrary border.

  15. Ubique says:

    The unemployment rates in Southern Europe have to be taken with a grain of salt, or maybe a bushel of it. How many denizens of southern European countries are drawing unemployment benefits but have cash jobs on the side? Millions I’d reckon.

  16. Tel says:

    Warm, humid weather.

    Turns you into a bum.

    Just look at what happened to QLD.

  17. Tel says:

    Unemployment in Scotland is 4% or less?

    Yeah, there is that… OK alternative theory, Northern countries are better at scamming the stats.

  18. pbw says:

    Marees,

    Malta is a green spot in the Med.

  19. Richard says:

    I would love to see that colour chart placed over our 560 local government bodies here in Australia.

  20. Pyrmonter says:

    (The bit that surprises me is Finland and the Baltics – I thought they’d all be a good deal lower. Russian sanctions?)

  21. Razor says:

    A French person on seeing this graphic, should be greatly annoyed with it’s socialist Govt when cf to Britain and Germany. Annoyed enough to reach for Le Pen and make a vote choice for the same colour as It’s east, north and west surrounds.

  22. Michel Lasouris says:

    Nothing has changed, The people of the Iberian peninsula, Southern Italy, and around Greece, are feckless, idle, and incompetent. The malaise extends steadily North. But the Anglos, Germanics and Scandinavians are the most productive, intelligent, and socially engaged. Nothing has changed and it will ever be thus. This is why the EU concept will never succeed

    They’re Eco-nuts in Finland.

  24. a reader says:

    Gibraltar is probably 2%

  25. Turtle of WA says:

    Soft underbelly.

    Hmm I do have some time tonight.

    try this

    example 2. More up to date.

  28. duncanm says:

    The second link above is pretty good — lets you zoom in and out. Shows trends per year etc.

    The enlightened areas of SW Sydney and Melbourne Western Suburbs look nice.

  29. C. Paul Barreira says:

    We may find that in the countries or provinces in red a black market prevails. It’s something we could use in South Australia. As well, there may also be a degree of cultural cohesion in those places that no longer exists elsewhere or is in the process of being destroyed.

  30. john constantine says:

    “Robots are no different than prior technologies in that they are a resource that enriches those who control it. The issue is, therefore, one of distribution, not automation, he explained.

    “Robots will never be our masters, but those who own them will be.”

  31. struth says:

    Until you separate the public service from the employment figures, isn’t it a bit irrelevant?

    You’ll often here tired old communists lament about the golden years of the USSR, when “everybody had a job” right up until no one had one because everybody was employed by the state.

    What would be interesting for Australia is a private versus public sector analysis.

    Contractors and NGO’s that are funded and all the boondoggles are included as public sector expense as they should be.
    I’d also like to see the non productive of the private sector put into the public sector expence.
    And we do have so many non productive and anti productive positions in the private sector , regulated into it by the public sector.

    I venture to say, those figures would be astounding.
    Staggering would be a better description.

  32. egg_ says:

    “Robots will never be our masters, but those who own them will be.”

    Toyota robots on the dole queue?
    Automation (software) to find jobs for those displaced by automation?

  33. Ms Smith says:

    “Robots will never be our masters, but those who own them will be”. I get the feeling that by the time robots will be overtaking man labour, that the elite globalists will have obtained their chosen objective in human depopulation and culling.

  34. Sydney Boy says:

    Until you separate the public service from the employment figures, isn’t it a bit irrelevant?

    The Northern European countries such as Finland have a vast socialist government and huge public employment in government jobs. I agree, private sector versus public sector employment would be an interesting result.

  35. Stu Morgan says:

    I blame Justinian.

  36. JC says:

    I wouldn’t read too much in those number especially for the southern countries. I’m not saying it’s a bed of roses, but there’s a heap of grey market labor activity in those redded out areas which aren’t picked up by stats.

    Spain used to be a marvel with this. I recall in the 90’s, Spain was registering 24% across the board unemployment, but GDP was moving higher at the rate of knots. Our economist explained that a large portion of Spanish hiring was done under the counter and we should ignore job stats from there. Both Greece and Italy have or had the same issue.

  37. . says:

    Of course they do a lot of under the counter stuff. Quasi-payroll taxes are really high in Spain.

    Employer contributions are 29.90% and the employee pays 6.35%, both going into a social security fund.

    Thanks.

    Though the official statistical distinction between “unemployment” and “inactivity” makes me think that Tel may be on the money about scamming stats. Or maybe the UK equivalent of the DSP is a factor – I’m told that the UK now has more “disabled” people than it had immediately after post-WWI demobilisation.
