    or maybe the title should be "Too much of a good thing"?

    Unemployment, the new Saudi challenge

    The country earns $480 million/day, and it still has problems. :bugeye:

    Now there is an opportunity for someone, assuming that the Saudi government would be receptive and open-minded.

    Employment doesn't come from cash, it comes from investment. How much of that 400 million a day is going into infrastructure, let alone employment opportunities.

    Unemployment is not trivial - the Nobel Prize was just awarded for a better understanding of the minimum (nonzero) level of it.

    Unemployment in Saudi Arabia is high because they have no skilled work force.
