To survive one's profession

I discuss the future of youth unemployment in Kvällsposten: Att Överleva Sitt Yrke (in Swedish).

My main point is that demographic change leads to differences in what jobs and careers mean: less transfer of wealth from older generations to younger, companies and even jobs survive shorter than individuals. Hence we need to enable more youth entrepreneurship and flexibility on the job market, or we will end up with a very stiff gerontocracy.
