I am Ekkehard Ernst, Economist & Jobs Expert, of the International Labour Organization (ILO). AMA
I’m Ekkehard Ernst, an economist at the International Labour Organization.

Rising corporate profits and booming stock markets aren't creating new jobs. In fact, they risk creating a potentially dangerous gap between profits and people.
