About this item

America has changed. The work force has shifted, grown, and then plummeted. Some surveys say—and the Obama administration likes to cite—that the unemployment rate has gone down in recent years. However, the reality is that the American “unemployment rate” has become an increasingly inaccurate barometer for measuring the health of the American labor market and the well-being of the American public.

The reality is that more people—but especially men in their prime—are out of work than ever before. Nicholas Eberstadt, America’s leading demographer and political economist who holds the Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at the Amearican Enterprise Institute, exposes this reality with fresh, detailed demographic data. He concludes that there is a new population of men—beyond the “employed” and “unemployed”—that are “unemployed but not looking for work.” Men Without Work pays particular attention to this last group—who are they? Why are they not looking for work? And how has the welfare state influenced, contributed to, or even exacerbated the reality of this new class of men?

Eberstadt presents a clear, researched look at what all Americans can no longer ignore.

Two respondents, one from the left and one from the right, offer their input on the subject.
