Abstract:This study examines the influence of the feelings of economic powerlessness and causal attributions for unemployment on the perceptions of economic distributive injustice of young people in Lesotho, controlling for gender and level of education. The study is based on a survey of 523 undergraduate students, and the data is analysed by means of descriptive, correlation, hierarchical regression and factor analyses. The results indicate that both the feelings of economic powerlessness and external attribution for unemployment are positively and significantly associated with the perceptions of economic distributive injustice. These results are discussed in light of the pressing socioeconomic problems in Lesotho. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
