Do Working Men Rebel? (Article)

Some (shabby) Statistical evidence that employment does not correlate with rise in terror attacks indicating that it is not free time that makes insurgency attractive but something else. Measurement of incident based on attack against government or coalition forces in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Phillipines. I wonder if the three cases are worth comparing, case of most different I guess. Still the economic model of the rational actor is a bad one to explain why people resort to insurgency, the role of ideas, and dignity are crucial. So if anything this data confirms that.

 

As a counter point this article concludes the exact opposite of the above one. In India it unemployment does correlate with Rebellion.
