ECONOMIC UNCERTAINTIES AND THE EU

THE LIMITS OF YOUTH OPTIMISM

In Polis Paper #4, Kris Best and Tori Dykes find that young Europeans are more pessimistic about their household financial situation, while both old and young Europeans seem to be equally concerned about their job security. However, European youth display higher levels of support for the EU across all levels of financial security, while financially insecure older Europeans tend to hold particularly negative opinions of the EU. If the pessimistic economic predictions among youth are realised, this could mean that today’s economically insecure youth are on track to become tomorrow’s disillusioned and eurosceptic over-30s.
