The topic under discussion at the elegant George V Hotel here this week was "uncommon courage--bold new models of corporate leadership." But none of the assembled business leaders was too surprised when one of the courageous featured speakers canceled at the last minute. Bernard Attali had been invited to discuss his tough new plan to shed 4,000 of 63,000 jobs at the beleaguered state-owned airline, Air France. But the problem was, Attali was no longer head of Air France.

LONDON - With investor confidence draining away and the value of the euro plunging, Europe struggled anew Wednesday to come up with a united game plan to keep its currency union intact and its economies from collapsing. Competing visions embraced by the continent's political heavyweights, France and Germany, clashed at an informal summit of European Union leaders with little chance of reconciliation even as fears grew that Greece could be forced out of the Eurozone and into a chaotic default.

The major labor unions of France challenged Premier Jacques Chirac with a strike by public workers Tuesday but failed to gather enough support to paralyze the cities, as they had threatened, or to weaken his conservative government. The 24-hour strike hampered public transportation but not enough to close down the Metro system. More than two-thirds of the subway trains were running by midday. Parisians usually judge the strength of a strike by how much it ties up the Metro.

Leaning back, Harry Oxley rakes a hand through his sandy hair and flashes his big-toothed smile. From behind plate-glass-thick eyeglasses Harry surveys the brass and fern motif of the restaurant. He grunts and smiles again. "I've really got the greatest lifestyle in the world," Oxley says. "I wouldn't trade with anybody, really. I don't know of anything that I'd like to do that I don't do. I have a lot of toys. I'm really lucky, and it's come from the sport." And why not? Oxley lives in San Clemente when he's not flying to Mexico in his new six-passenger airplane to look in on the construction of his dream home.
