ABSTRACT
The article comments on economics professor Martin Feldstein's statements about some unemployment myths in the U.S., which were published in "Harvard Business Review." The first is that unemployment insurance replaces only a third of the lost income of the unemployed. The second myth is the view of unemployment as a hard core of potential workers who are unable to find jobs. The last myth is that most of those who collect unemployment compensation are poor.
