Kohler, H. (1992).  Kohler Economics.
"Although short-term involuntary unemployment may be viewed as a welcome vacation, prolonged unemployment wreaks havoc within the affected families. It erodes the self-worth of the affected individuals and possibly even their skills. Eventually, unemployment benefits cease, savings are used up, appliances, cars, and clothes wear out, and despair moves in. Various studies have linked rising unemployment rates with increased incidence of divorce, suicide, disease (notably cardiovascular failure and cirrhosis of the liver), crime, and more. The personal costs just cited, when sufficiently widespread, can tear apart civilized society." (p. 166)
