The Great Jobs Disaster C.P. Chandrasekhar and Jayati Ghosh In the desperate search for evidence that the global recession has bottomed out and the recovery has arrived, the story told by the long-term trend in unemployment levels and rates is being missed. Early this year, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) had noted that the global unemployment rate was close to 6 per cent, implying that 197 million people were unemployed, even ignoring the 39 million who had dropped out of the workforce, discouraged by persistent failure in job search. But that aggregate figure concealed a picture that was far worse in the advanced economies where the crisis had originated and spread. There were at least 12 advanced economies where the unemployment rate was 8 per cent or more, and seven in which the rate was 10 per cent or more.

And this is after cutting back my wardrobe by 50%. So just imagine what I had in there before that I didn’t use, want or need! Still if I had to only bring 30 pieces, this is what I’d imagine would be the barest of bare minimum for me. 2 pairs of Trouser Jeans or work pants2 pairs of jeans1 Casual Blazer3 Work Sweaters1 Ultimate Soft Cushy Sweater2 Camisoles/Tank Tops3 Work Tops2 T-shirts2 sets of Sweatpants or Leggings (one of these pairs are compression stockings from RejuvaHealth.com) — only to wear at home!
