Unemployment entails serious economic and social costs. One of the main negative consequences of unemployment is the non-working state of able-bodied citizens and, accordingly, the output. If the economy is not able to meet the need for jobs for everyone who is willing and able to work, who is looking for work and is ready to start it, who is willing and able to work, who is looking for work and is ready to start it, then the potential production of goods and services. Consequently, unemployment prevents society from developing and moving forward in accordance with its potential. Ultimately, this is seen as a slowdown in economic growth, a lag in the volume of increase in gross national product. Thus, some economists believe that a 1 percent excess of employment leads to a lag of real gross domestic product by 2.5 percent of potential GNP. In addition to purely economic costs, these are the significant social and moral consequences of unemployment, its negative impact on social values and the vital interests of citizens. Unemployment, no matter what level it is measured, is always a tragedy for those who have no job and cannot get a legitimate source of livelihood. Prolonged inactivity leads to loss of skills, which finally kills the hope of finding a job in the specialty. The loss of a source of existence and a miserable existence lead to a decline in moral values, a loss of self- esteem, a breakup of a family, etc. Researchers find a direct link between the increase in suicides, homicides, mental illness, cardiovascular mortality and high unemployment. 4.A.

The metaphysical stage is an interim. The final, stage is reached when human beings finally realize that natural phenomena and world events can be explained through reason and science.major work, the four-volume System of Positive Polity, in which he completed his formulation of sociology. Major Publications The Course on Positive Philosophy (1830-1842)Discourse on the Positive Sprit (1844)A General View of Positivism (1848) Religion of Humanity (1856) Comte believed that this new field could produce knowledge of society based on scientific evidence./// Comte looks at positivism as the last stage of human development. He classified the sciences themselves on the basis of "increasing complexity and decreasing generality of application in the ascending order:" mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, and sociology. Each science depends at least in part on the science preceding it; hence all contribute to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
