Pedigree usually doesn't mean much, of course, though given that he is virtually not recognised, at least in economics, outside of France, I would guess that here, his pedigree suggests the same sort of austerity-tinged tunnel-vision as afflicts the elite political and economic class in France and on the continent in general.
