Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the FN's economic policy is about as relevant as, say, Ennahda's in Tunisia.  Ennahda, being the religious party, tried to apply religious doctrine to the subject, and it turned out that neither the Koran nor the Hadiths have much to say about running a modern economy. With the FN it would (will?) be the same : they can say what they want about the economy, but that's not what is important to them, and they will be completely clueless about how to manage it, with disastrous results.
