The French consider that coming back from their summer holiday means being back at work (where most spend 35 hours per week, with 5 or 6 weeks holiday and RTT). This may explain something about their
competitiveness ; “croissance” ; Frenchonomics.
Renaud Favier, August 21st, 2012.
Some additional e-reading may be needed about Frenchonomics and other issues. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on TV and others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French
learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times).
Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).

Mario Draghi is a good (banker ?) player. Nobody really knows what game he is playing at the moment, but all the big guys seem very enthusiastic about it. Or almost all the big guys. Because Angela Merkel recommends more work and less talk.
