    Questions and comments
    • For what year do you think Europeans will have a constitution approved by all states?
    • When does this constitution begin to get a hold of the government?
    • The European Union will never be able to be a counterpart to the United States in the sense of being a bipolar world.
    • You are skeptical of the situation of the European Union today, but you are optimistic that it will not withstand the test of time.
    • There is a possible attraction of Islamic emigration into Europe, especially the youth.
    • You have too many Turks in Germany.
    • What will happen with the unemployment percentages in Central Europe due to what's happening right now, that companies are moving to Czechoslovakia?
    • The only hopeful sign in Europe for me, is the European Code of Justice in Luxemburg.
    • What was in the minds of the businessmen of the European Union?
    • The unemployment rate in Europe for the last thirty years has been hovering around eleven percent, and Europe with so little youth and so much unemploymentn is a sign that things aren't working out.
    • And price fixation, what are the correlations of price fixation controls?
    • You mentioned that one of the positive things was that the industrial services were open within the European borders, but not outside the European borders, this hasn closed Europe.
    • Europe has inhibited us to export agricultural products to it.

About this video

The transition that Europe has gone through during the second half of the twentieth century, as well as its unification, has made its future relatively unknown. In this conference, Jacques Garello discusses Europe’s constitutional and economic view and defines that there are some nations in the European Union which, due to the model that they decided to follow, are doing quite well while others aren't. He analyzes the rate of unemployment and shows how the countries that adopted the Anglo-Saxon model, in which unions have less power, have less unemployment than countries that followed the Rhenan model, which focuses more on the social issue rather than the economic one and also supports stronger unions and economic regulations. Garello explains the role of globalization and the need for the European Union to be aware that countries forming this union differ in background and the model they follow.
