Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, I agree it is unusual to call France a monetary union.
But I then simply don't understand Mig's using France as an example for his statement "But absent a monetary union there is no reason not to have capital controls". I must be missing something, I am not trying to be obtuse but I don't think I got it.
