Editorial
The famous phrase ‘‘
blood, toil, tears and sweat ‘‘ 
was rst uttered in 1849 by Giuseppe Garibaldi whenrallying his revolutionary forces in Rome. Theodore Roosevelt also uttered the phrase in 1897, following his
appointment as Assistant Secretary of the Navy. However, this phrase became well known after Churchill’s
rst speech to the House after taking over as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the rst year of World
War II. We’ll probably hear often things like this in the coming months.La célèbre expression
«du sang, de la sueur et des larmes»
a été prononcée en 1849 par Giuseppe Gari
-baldi lorsqu’il a rassemblé ses forces révolutionnaires à Rome. Théodore Roosevelt l’a également prononcée
en 1897, suite à sa nomination comme secrétaire adjoint de la Marine. Cependant, elle est devenue mondia
-
lement célèbre après le premier discours de Churchill en tant que Premier ministre du Royaume-Uni durant
la première année de la seconde guerre mondiale. Nous devrions l’entendre souvent dans les mois à venir.

SACSIS, Deena Stryker, August 15, 2011
As almost every european country is facing major nancial risks, the small northern country, Iceland,should become an example. The nancial crisis rou
-ghly hit a country that presented a strong growth since
many years. While the debt sky rocketed, the Kroner 
lost 85% of its value with respect to the Euro. But thiscrisis resulted in Icelanders recovering their sovereignrights.This article (August 2011) explains why european citi-zens should look to Iceland, an example of how andwhy to refuse to bow to foreign interests might rein-force sovereignty.

The Daily Beast, Rob Baedeker, November 21, 2011
With the crisis, the purchasing power of every citizen istumbling. And a fascinating point is that strangers arewilling to pay their neighbour to rent their belongings,in order to save a few pennies. The fact that anyonecan make money from stuff not used anymore is anincredible discovery. This article give details about thisincreasing trends: “collaborative consumption”.
Deskmag, Dave Bunnell & Jeannine van der Linden,November 14, 2011
Paraphrasing Wikipedia, co-working could be dened
as “a style of work which involves independent pro-fessionals sharing a work environment; usually in acoworking space”. Nowadays, it is not uncommon for co-workers to communicate and collaborate everydaywith others in coworking spaces, online, world widely.This article wonders if coworking is the new incubator.

Égoïstes, paresseux, intolérants, c’est en ces termes
que sont qualiés les jeunes par un panel de Français
lors d’un sondage réalisé pour 
Le Monde
.
Manque de conance et incompréhension envers sa jeunesse ? Signes d’une société vieillissante ?
Quoiqu’il en soit, l’auteur de l’article se lance dans
un plaidoyer concis mais efcace pour la tolérance etl’altruisme intergénérationnel. Un résumé pertinent duressenti de nombreux jeunes en France.
Citizen Polity, James Epstein-Reeves,November 7, 2011
An important study revealed that American consumers
expect rms to do well nancially while being res
-ponsible on how they act. 83% agree that enterprisesshould accomplish their business targets while tryingto improve society and the environment.
This article asserts that the manner in which rmsmake prot becomes more important than the prot in
itself.

The Guardian, Peter Madden, November 9, 2011
While hit by the debt crisis, the EU remains a major 
market maker in environmental standards and regu-lation.This article gives the few themes the author used in itslast San Francisco’s presentation on the latest trendsfor business sustainability in Europe: a root and branchquestioning of capitalism, changing consumers throughbrands, how to integrate thinking on biodiversity intotheir sustainability strategies and the emphasis as onoverlaying digital intelligence on existing infrastructure.
Business Ethics, Michael Connor,November 14, 2011
When companies embody a sustainable businessimage, CEOs are more likely to be aware of their im-
pact in term of sustainability; whereas traditional rms
with compensation based on short-term metrics pushmanagers towards decisions that forget the long-termvalue creation.This article reveals the results of a study led by theHarvard Business School and the London BusinessSchool: companies with a high sustainable business
culture “signicantly outperform their counterparts over 
the long-term, both in terms of stock market and ac-counting performance”.

Researchers of Stanford set out a study in order to
compare telecommuters with ofce-based employees.
This article gives the results of the study. And they areastonishing…
20 Minutes, 15 novembre 2011
Frédéric Lefebvre, le secrétaire d’Etat chargé des
PME, a annoncé lors d’une conférence à Bercy, quele télétravail ne concernait que 9% des salariés fran
-
çais contre 18% des européens. Son développement
semblant être une volonté gouvernementale, une sériede mesures a été annoncée dont un plan d’action com-
portant trois grands axes : une simplication du cadre juridique du télétravail, une facilitation du recours au
télétravail et une meilleure information des salariés et
des entreprises sur le sujet.
Brazen, Kelly Gurnett, November 3, 2011
Probably, the way we work is not the best one. That’sthe premise behind the Results-Only Work Envi-ronment (ROWE) initiative. The authors of the studybelieve the modern workplace is cluttered with regu-lations, expectations and wrong practices that havenothing to do with the actual work we’re supposed tobe doing.
This article details the benets of focusing on em
-
ployees’ results only: workers are more efcient,
disruptions disappear, employees get their lives back,adults are treated like adults, the wheat is cut from thechaff and employers win, too.
CMI, Tim Chambers, November 17, 2011
Uncertainty surrounding job security is leading to wor 
-
kers spending more time in the ofce to appear va
-luable to their managers. According to a study, 41%
of workers feel pressure ‘‘visible’’ in the ofce. More
than 25% think the interpretation of their performance
is based on how much time they spend in the ofce
rather than their outputs. This short article explains the
importance to encourage exible working.
