Graduating in a bad economy has long-lasting economic consequences. For example, the share of customer deposits held by the top 10 largest U.

For efficient economic output, factors of production should be efficient enough to equal or exceed their input levels. This means that training impacts may appear low just because the alternative against which training is evaluated involves a similarly effective treatment at the same point in time, or in the future.

    Alana Semuels is a former staff writer at The Atlantic. Within a year after unification, the number of unemployed rose above 3 million.
