We just need more rich

French manufacturing index plummets

But cheer up, France’s socialist president François HollandeFrancois has admited that taxes have become “too heavy, much too heavy” and says he’ll get around to fixing that, someday.

Meanwhile, Hollande’s pet revenue enhancer,  the country’s new 75% tax on millionaires and corporations, kicks in today. That’ll fix things. Trouble in paradise? Hardly – France is on the brink of achieving exactly what progressives have demanded for the past century. Success is in hand.

    Expect to hear a little more French around town this year.

  2. Irving Kristol said a neo-conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. Hollande is currently being mugged.

    Reminds us of why we left France.

    Soon DeBlasio will have his mugging.

    The years ahead will be fascinating for the EU. Fire in France, hire in Germany. Borrow in France, lend in Germany. This can’t go on forever.
