In 2003, after being laid off, I wrote an essay with that title and put it on my Web site. It ended up getting humongous numbers of hits, and it generated lots of e-mails — friendly ones from other unemployed people, hostile ones from rightwingers, supportive ones.
I've expanded that essay into a short book. Description here: http://www.dvorkin.com/unemben/index.html
Or maybe I should say that I've written a short book which includes that essay and other thoughts on the same subject.
