This is an excellent article by Maurice Levy, chief executive of Publicis Groupe, published in the FT. It’s well worth a read. Check it out!

via France should face up to its fears of a sombre future – FT.com.

The article provides some powerful insights into modern France, the fears of the French people and the ineffectiveness of the French political classes. I was intrigued that the UK was lumped with Germany and Poland where people had a positive outlook for the future, unlike Southern Europe.

So far, France has avoided a financial crisis like the rest of Southern Europe but both domestically and internationally nobody seems to now have any faith in the French President, former school teacher, Francois Hollande; certainly Germany has serious concerns about France.

Any thoughts?
