Palier on Retirement Reforms

With retirement reform apparently the centerpiece of Sarkozy's domestic policy in the runup to 2012, it is worth listening to this series of interviews with one of France's leading experts on retirement policy, Bruno Palier. Below is one segment in which Bruno makes the interesting point that France has more unions with fewer members than other countries, making for a fragmented and competitive negotiating environment. He also discusses the difficulty of resolving the issue of how to deal with difficult and stressful jobs when confronting the issue of length of working life.
