New World, New Capitalism

Those interested in the "Nouveau Monde, Nouveau Capitalisme" conference can follow it here on video. Sarko's speech is interesting for the number of times he addresses "chère Angela" by her first name but also, more seriously, for the rather aggressive distinction he draws between "old Europe"--still young in its head, he says--and the prodigal son, America, the root of all (present) evil. In Roundtable 1, Jean-Paul Fitoussi is particularly worth listening to on "the regulation of states and the deregulation of the market ... rules versus discretion."
