Abstract: This text gives an analytical review of the first main estimations of the impacts of the Aubry's law on employment in France. Both macro and micro approaches seem to converge to about 300 000 net job creations in the short-term, mainly in pioneer firms ("Aubry I" firms). However, because these first movers have made the choice to anticipate the legal commitment, these estimations can be affected by an auto-selection bias. The latter have not been yet robustly corrected. Further researches are thus required to confirm positive impacts of shorter working time on employment.

So that's how you say "It's not rocket science" in French ;-)

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman

Indeed !
But you know I am really lazy Jérôme, plus while at the office, I am expected to be working right now (as many of us), so thank you for extracting that for me.
