Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm well aware that the USA is not a paradise either. Neither do I intend to say that all is bad in France and all is good elsewhere. This article claimed that there is no need for reform in France, while I have seen with my own eyes that there is. That doesn't mean that France should blindly copy everything from the USA or the UK. If France let its creative forces work, cut down on public sector overspending (according to the Daily Telegraph today, 52% of France's GDP is spent in the public sector against 42% in the UK) and adjusted the taxes to attract capital and investment instead of scaring them away, then the country and its economy could produce very good results, given that many of the country's resources are badly used.
