The Great Recession has had a significant impact on older workers, and long-term unemployment has become a too familiar problem for those north of 50 years old.

To discuss the realities of long-term unemployment, its direct effects on people's personal, economic and emotional well-being, and how to reboot or reinvent a career, Inside E Street speaks with:

  • Kevin Hassett, director of economic policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute;
  • Dean Baker, codirector at the Center for Economic and Policy Research;
  • Marci Alboher, author of The Encore Career Handbook: How to Make a Living and a Difference in the Second Half of Life.
