Finance Le chômage en France Le BIT est le Bureau international du travail, l'instance baséeà Genève qui dirige l'Organisation internationale du travail (OIT),une agence regroupant les pays de l'ONU et cherchant à promouvoir la justice sociale et le travail décent. Le BIT a élaboré des méthodes statistiques pour pouvoir comparer les données sociales d'un pays à l'autre qui ont été affinées par Eurostat, l’agence statistique européenne.Pour calculer le nombre de chômeurs, ils préconisent ainsi de ne retenir que les demandeurs d'emploi de 15 ans ou plus... ... n'ayant pas travaillé au cours de la semaine... étant disponible pour travailler dans les deux semaines... et ayant entrepris des démarches actives de recherche d'emploi dans le mois précédent (ou ayant trouvé un emploi qui commence dans les 3 mois). C'est sur cette statistique (collectée chaque trimestre par l'Insee auprès d'un "panel" d'environ 45 000 ménages) que sont basés les taux de chômage publiés tous les trimestres par l'Insee.

Stock market Size of market[edit] Stocks are partitioned in various ways. One common way is by the country where the company is domiciled. For example, Nestle, Roche, and Novartis are domiciled in Switzerland, so they are part of the Swiss stock market. The size of the world stock market was estimated at about $36.6 trillion at the beginning of October 2008.[1] The total world derivatives market has been estimated at about $791 trillion face or nominal value,[2] 11 times the size of the entire world economy.[3] The value of the derivatives market, because it is stated in terms of notional values, cannot be directly compared to a stock or a fixed income security, which traditionally refers to an actual value. Stock exchanges[edit] Stocks are listed and traded on stock exchanges which are entities of a corporation or mutual organization specialized in the business of bringing buyers and sellers of the organizations to a listing of stocks and securities together.

Early Investor Lockup Expires, But Facebook Gains Anyway Wally Pfister is nervous—and with good reason. In a few hours, Pfister, 52, will slip into his best suit and head from his house in the Hollywood Hills to Westwood’s Regency Village Theater for the red-carpet premiere of his new movie, Transcendence. For most filmmakers Pfister’s age, this would be a moment to bask in. A luxurious $100 million budget. But Pfister isn’t most filmmakers his age. “This is a very difficult period right now—being in limbo,” he admits. By almost any measure, Pfister is a remarkable success: a local news cameraman turned Oscar-winning cinematographer, he’s spent the last 14 years as Christopher Nolan’s go-to DP (director of photography). But Pfister was getting antsy, as usual. We’re sitting in Pfister’s rec room—his man cave, of sorts. Pfister looks exhausted too. Pfister offers me a glass of water. “Every 10 years I needed to make a radical change in what I was doing,” Pfister tells me. Do you remember first reading the Memento script? Why? It is. Really?
