Your discussion should be reasonably focussed...it doesn't need to deal with everything possible under the topics for the week. Please be very clear about what idea the presentation is supposed to be illustrating and how it illustrates it.

1. How unemployment is measured
2. Why are there always people unemployed
3. Unemployment Insurance
