Mideast Jordan Young and Hopeless Solutions

Mohammed Nabouti, a 21-year-old technician, fixes the air conditioner of a shop in Amman, Jordan on Monday, March 4, 2013. Just six months of learning to fix air conditioners changed Nabouti's life. Instead of drifting after high school like many of his jobless friends, Nabouti has taken a small loan to start his own business and recently got engaged. Nabouti's story points to a quick fix the unemployment-stricken Middle East might try until deeper economic reforms can kick in, experts say. This quick fix includes job training, micro loans and help in setting up businesses. (AP Photo/Raad Adayleh)
