Abstract

This documentary gives the floor to several heads of government in France and retraces, hour by hour those major events in contemporary political life. Those interviewed, Pierre Mauroy concerning the European Monetary System, Michel Rocard on the New Caledonia conflict and Edouard Balladur concerning the proposal for a special work contract for young people entering the working world, throw light upon decision making at the top State level. What were the constraints that made a difference in their decision making ? On what elements did they base decision ? How successful were they ?
