Europe's Scariest Chart Update: Italy Now Worse Than Portugal

Europe's Scariest Chart Update: Italy Now Worse Than Portugal

, by Tyler Durden (Zero Hedge)

For the first time in two years, Italy's youth unemployment rate is now higher than Portugal's at a staggering 38.7% (which is where Greece was just two years ago).

Apart from Germany (which fell from 8.0% to 7.9%), every other nation saw youth unemployment rates rise with a record 24.2% of European youth unemployed.

Greece (59.4%) and Spain (55.5%) remain the most concerning as we noted in the past, austerity sounds straightforward as a policy, until the consequences bite in terms of social unrest.
