France needs globalisation to be stronger and more positive. Sowhy don’t we French look into a new kind of globalisation made‘by the people for the people’ of Europe? Welcome to Eurolisa-tion, the new European globalisation.
Here are a few examples:
Entrepreneurship: Ireland respects and de-fends entrepreneurs by giving them the rightto create companies without legal or financialrestrictions.
EQUALITY: Germany promotes apprentice-ship as the ideal path to a job and a successfulfuture. There are no more chasms betweenexecutive income and technical jobs: they areall valued equally.
Performance: Every employee working inpublic administration in Croatia is evaluatedand can lose their job if they don’t complywith strict standards.
GENEROSITY: Greece has a tradition of do-nating blood at every social occasion.
SOLIDARITY: Portugal has banned restau-rants from disposing of unused food at theend of the day and asks for it to be dis-tributed to local canteens or neighbourhoodsoup kitchens.
QUALITY: Estonia introduced a quality billfor all its food products with three guidingprinciples: quality of taste, human safety andnational job creation.
These examples show there is a third way between a Frenchautarchic self-sufficient model on the one hand, and the anony-mous absolutist world guided by markets and the internet on theother. Only these daily ‘little things in life’ contribute to makingEurope a long-term common union. We have what it takes to cre-ate a stronger continent and a more globalised and united Europewhere efficiency and human dignity are reconciled.
