TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-06-23

Pierre Moscovici, Former French Finance Minister

Pierre Moscovici served as France's Finance Minister in the Socialist government of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault from May 2012 until March of this year. His appointment, following the election of François Hollande, was supposed to herald a change in Europe's economic policies. At the height of the eurozone crisis, Moscovici sought to convince his German partners that too much austerity had damaged Europe.

These days, our guest advises France's new Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Europe, but it's no secret he's eyeing a job in the new European Commission.

In partnership with HEC Paris Executive Education and the HEC Europe Institute
