ABSTRACT
The article discusses several issues in relation to unemployment in the U.S. The author points out that unemployment can be greatly reduced, if not completely avoided by the stabilization of business. Unemployment is said to be a complex problem of many ramifications. Several suggestions to overcome unemployment are enumerated including forecasting and planning, standardization and simplification of products, diversification of products, producing for an established market, vertical integration and broader training of employees.
