The French are skeptical of globalization for very good reasons, as the U.S. is in the process of learning. FDI is a long-term siphoning process that is dogmatically pitched to prospective employees and investors for its potential short-term gains.

So sorry if the wealthiest of the wealthy feel a pinch. So sorry if mega-corporations, which care not for people, society, or the health of the planet, find their budgets tightened. The alternative, which is practiced now, will take developed countries back to where the developing countries were 30 years ago: stagnant economies and wasted talent on a vast scale, with a tiny corrupt elites hoarding all the capital.

Is your brain closing to thought?

What? No corporate-welfare? Reasonable regulation? and paying your fail tax share?

I get it, you hyper-capitalists don’t actually want to WORK for a living. You want your rape to come easy… .

it is not “changing”

you “anticipate” a change based on “your” interpretation of his election campaign and socialism

politically-inspired socio-economic change in mainstream Europe takes years, not days

just focus on reporting the news and not a ventriloquist influencing market sentiment

Already we structure our business to take advantage of the lower tax rate, but this will shift more FDI to more business friendly EU countries

The best things the French do is export ideas. They vastly improved the English Enlightenment with original thinking, and then went off and slaughtered the people with the ideas and spent the next two generations plunging the country into ruin.

Capital moves now, freely, and even more freely in the Euro zone they insist they must have. The French young, when they emigrate will find the emerging Africans don’t need them, and have a few scores to settle. No one else in Europe will speak French, and the poor English taught in French schools won’t get them far. Someone needs to teach the world the perils of Socialism, the French are a very deserving test tube.

You can not have two faces. You need to have one consistent face to the world. France can decide that it can be a part of the world or exist by itself.

The French do a lot of things better than others. Manufacturing iPhones is not one of them. Designing luxury goods is one of them. Should we all not do what we are good at and that which remunerates us best ???

This line of thinking is absurd and dangerous. The French are better off without this particular minister.

Let the French provide the capital.
