December 20, 2011

In this op-ed for the Baltimore Sun, Assistant Professor of Economics Jeremy Schwartz, Ph.D., writes: "Opponents of continuing the extension of unemployment insurance often make one of the following arguments: (1) the program is welfare for the undeserving; (2) it subsidizes leisure and is a major contributor to the high unemployment rate; or (3) the extension does little to create jobs. The critics have it wrong on all counts."
