After spending several days in the Paris suburbs and filing stories non-stop all day today, a few things struck me.
I have written about the first incident that sparked the riots and today's latest news (more violence already starting tonight and plans by French government to use curfew.)
The underlying feeling I got from the young people in Clichy-sous-Bois - where the troubles began - is total despair with no way out.
Seems there must be CK Prahalad opportunities for these young people to make a fortune - or at least a living - if they are given half a chance.
What ideas for businesses or projects that can bring hope to despairing young people in a high rise ghetto?
Are there successful models of what can be done?
