Youth Unemployment: Europe's Lost Generation

Once again, European leaders are meeting here in Paris to talk about sky-rocketing youth unemployment in Europe. It's the latest in a flurry of meetings and measures since German leader Angela Merkel said the issue was the most pressing facing the continent. But despite all of their efforts, the rate of joblessness still continues to rise. Annette Young and her guests discuss whether or not we have passed the point of no return for Europe's lost generation.
