2011: Fewer Jobs, Longer Hours? (part 2)

As the French argue about repealing the 35-hour work week, François Picard’s panel wonders if a more flexible work force will really reduce unemployment in Europe. We know that a later retirement age is coming but can the same be said about longer working hours?

A debate with François Picard and guests:

A. Craig COPETAS, Senior writer for Bloomberg News
Raquel GARRIDO, International Spokesperson of the "Parti de Gauche"
Jacques RELAND, Head of the European Programme at the Global Policy Institute
Asghar ZAIDI, Director of Research at the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research (by satellite from Vienna)

Programme prepared by Yi Song Jeanette Coombs and Perrine Desplats
