THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2013-03-28

Can the left fix it?

François Hollande has only been in power for ten months, but looking at the polls it can seem like a lifetime. Across the Alps, Pier Luigi Bersani’s tenure as Italy’s prime minister could be over before it has even started. François Picard’s panel suggests that the left in recession-hit Europe make a pitch to loosen monetary policy. But will they sell that to the Germans in an election year?

  • Francesco SARACENO. Senior Economist, OFCE;
  • Nicolas GOETZMANN. Strategic Investment Advisor;
  • Mark DEEN. Journalist, Bloomberg News.

Produced by Anelise Borges, François Picard, Claire Williams, Christopher Davis.
