THESE ARE 22/23 YEAR OLDS WHO CANNOT GET ‘REAL JOBS’ BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE IN FRANCE  FOR THEM. SO THEY GO TO GRAD SCHOOL, WHERE THERE IS NO TUITION TO SPEAK OF, AND GAIN SOME WORK EXPERIENCE, ANOTHER ACADEMIC DEGREE AND GET PAID AS WELL.

HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS:

How do you manage risk and what are the limits?

Are there risk-free investments?

What about the pursuit of happiness?

Real Estate markets?

According to Humanist principles, what do you think about financial speculation?

How did the crisis affect you personally?

How do you advise us to invest, as we are beginners?

How can we start from ZERO?

Is it necessary to have high risk to have high return?

How do you see the position of France in 10 years?

What about the relation between the US and China?  Between the US and Europe?

What about “Green” technology?

DO you ever think about the consequences of your investments?  (Investing in arms suppliers for example)

What do you do with your free time?

How much time, per day, per week, do you spend looking after your investments?

What do you think of Obama getting the Nobel prize?

Which products are best to invest in  terms of risk/return ratio?

What is the future for Capitalism?
