Fewer young men are working or in school. What are they doing?

Playing video games.  Seriously.  See this blog post about Booth Chicago's Erik Hurst in Marginal Revolution for details.

Apparently able to depend on parents, spouses or significant others, it is a bit hard to imagine these young men are going to be qualified for jobs or even looking for jobs anytime soon.  I am reluctantly concluding that we are getting as close to full employment as we are going to get.
