I am convinced that we have to start thinking about a post-growth economy with equal distribution of work for the aim of a sustainable society. There are some theoretical concepts of well known economists working on "degrowth" and "downshifting" and some movements and pilots (almende etc.).
Less rather than more as their leitmotif.
I agree that youth unemployment as crisis could accelerate the further development of such ideas and concepts and then be a chance for change.
