Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Makes this foreigner wonder what the French see in Mr. Sarkozy's "reform" program.  What do working people in France imagine the benefit to be?  Perhaps they are unaware of what other countries farther down this road have become.  I wonder what the Gini index will be for France after 10 years of Sarkozy.

I'm afraid that some of Sarkozy voters may not have been driven by economical issues only but also by racial/xenophobic ones.

Moreover, I feel that France has been a bit slower in the uptake of "deregulation is good" theories, and that France will now be a bit slower to reverse its economical myths.
