Summary: This issue of Foundation Findings deals with work-life balance in Europe. The EU needs to increase employment rates to ensure continued economic growth and promote social inclusion.

raons econòmiques per apostar per la igualtat de gènere
La igualtat entre homes i dones és una qüestió de drets humans, de justícia social i és també una qüestió econòmica. Estudis realitzats a nivell internacional demostren que les societats mes igualitàries corresponen als països mes desenvolupats econòmicament. L’augment de la població activa comporta també l’augment del Producte Interior Brut (PIB) i suposa creixement econòmic, com passa als països del nord d’Europa (Suècia, Dinamarca, Islàndia, Finlàndia). Espanya i Catalunya comencen a anar també per aquest camí. Per tant, treballar per a la igualtat de gènere, també significa fomentar la incorporació de les ... market research, surveys and trends

Universities have placed vocation over thought
that the massive issue of university funding is a test of "Europe's seriousness of purpose in the 21st century". The UK response has now come from the business secretary, Vince Cable, in the form of proposals for a graduate tax , increased fees, and an accelerated two-year degree course. He may as well have gone the whole hog and announced a change of title, from universities to "degree factories". In fact, such a move would not be a precedent: the 1992 Further and Higher Education Act enabled polytechnics to change their titles to universities, which they did, more or less overnight. The adverse effects ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
In Greece, New Austerity Measures Rile Many

Paul's series is part of his ongoing reporting on Making Sense of financial news.

Over the longer run (6+ months) a soft Euro will help make the EU exports more competitive based on price. In the meantime there reason there is so much noise in the media about the decline in Euro is because Europeans are addressing the reduction in budget deficits (e.g. G 20 meeting this weekend), and this will be done by reducing government spending.
