Revolt of the French 'pigeons' (part 2)
Could a flock of pigeons reshape French attitudes to business? French slang for "fall guys", the pigeons have proven their point and got the government to back down on new capital gains taxes for small business. François Picard’s panel looks at the pros and cons of starting a company in a no-growth economy.
