Netherlands in crisis: the end of the Dutch model?

The Netherlands has long been seen in Brussels as a robust player in the Triple-A league. But ask the Dutch and they’ll tell you a different story as unemployment rises to almost 8 percent. But what can the rest of Europe learn from the Dutch model? Dutch MEP Judith Merkies takes us for a cycle tour across Amsterdam: together we examine the Netherlands’ flexible labour market and we visit the country’s pioneering flood control defences.
