Radha Jagannathan authors this final chapter and begins with an examination of the disconnect that exists between knowledge/data on the employment policies with an empirical record of success and the motivation to implement these policies that could dramatically reduce the youth unemployment rates in southern Mediterranean countries. This apparent disconnect is explored through a cultural lens with the help of five, not necessarily mutually exclusive, hypotheses. The chapter then goes on to provide the reader with a scorecard of the feasibility of the German and American models for the southern Mediterranean countries featured in this book. This scorecard contrasts the rankings of chapter experts with assessments of each country’s (Spain, Portugal, Greece, France, Italy) prospects by the authors of the German and American chapters (chapters 7 and 8). Each chapter expert was asked to provide a brief rational for his/her ranking based on the data and discussion which appears in the chapter contributions. These rationales are presented unfiltered. The chapter concludes with a final word on technology transfer in an environment of renewed nationalism.
