Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This article claimed that there is no need for reform in France

This is the exact opposite of what we're saying. What we are saying is that the "reform" (note the quotes - they are in the title, and flagged in the first paragraph of the text) we are being sold is a one way ideological agenda to improve the short term profitability of (big) corporations and lower the taxes of the rich, at the expense of everybody else. And we have the numbers to prove it.

Of course France needs reform - just not the kind everybody has been unthinkingly led to believe are 'inevitable'. Have you noted the Hegelian/Marxist bend of these proclamation that free-market reform is inevitable?

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
