France: La Bonne Vie – French Economy and Society

North American and European conceptions of the good life ("la bonne vie") and society diverge in significant ways. Europeans tend to put a higher priority on leisure than work and favor a greater role for government in the economy. In this course, we explore those differences by traveling to France and gaining insights about that country's recent history as well as its leading industries. These include the cultural, financial, gaming, tourism, entertainment, and wine industries. The study tour in this course will take students to Paris, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, and Monte Carlo.
