Barely one hundred years after the major upheavals which marked the 20th century, what resources can France (which is said to be de-industrialised) and Europe (which is experiencing both a financial crisis and a crisis of legitimacy) rely on for their future ? Four guests attempt to provide answers to this question. They discuss the strength and fragility of Germany, competition from China, the long-awaited emergence of Africa, the French social model and European solidarity, and, finally, the place of new industrial technologies. These views paint a picture of the deep changes which await us and suggest potential solutions which are sometimes surprising and even iconoclastic.
