Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is the right wing economic press after. Do they think that installing a more capitalist friendly government will open up the markets in France?

Perhaps there are some big French firms that are ripe for the taking? There has to be some motivation for trying to reform the French economy (aside from the ideologues, that is)?

What am I missing?

France is the prime example of a large economy where taxes are high, government is active - and efficient, redistribution is large and mostly effective at reducing poverty ... and yet it is still a thriving economy.

France is the proof that all their neolib theories are full of shit. That's why they have to bring it down in a systematic way.
