Great #Draghi saves #Euro(pe) : Visible and Invisible Hands do the Job, but Who Writes the Story ?

Everybody agrees, that Mario Draghi has done a very good job over the last few months and a great performance last Thursday, which might as well have been quite black for Euro, Europe, the markets and real people. The invisible hand is happy.

Byzeway, Great Draghi sounds like Great Gatsby, but it’s just phonetics. Or is it ?

Frenchonomics : Good News, We Know the French Paradox is a Fake ; Bad News, The French Don’t

French Ducks and Geese are happy : US ban on Foie Gras is good for their health and longevity. The bad news is, the French will eat enormous quantities of Foie for Christmas and New-Year even if they are bankrupt. Because this is the French “tradition”.

Frenchonomics : Good News is, the French are Back … at Business School

One could believe, France would have no real business schools but only Sorbonne to educate the Jean-Paul Sartre and likes, medical schools to make sure they can export French Doctors if not cars, nukes or foie gras, and a few aero-schools. Not true.

Believe it or not, the French actually have quite a few business schools. And some of them look like normal campuses where would be entrepreneurs can learn how to start and run businesses, provided bureaucrats and ruling politicians let them do so.

And, believe it or not, politicians, top managers,the media and business unions meet every year at one of those business schools to discuss policy, economics competitiveness and other issues, right after their summer holiday (then  they they go back to French business and Frenchonomics as usual, nothing is perfect).

And, believe it or not, the French current Leader Maximo was educated at one of the real French Business Schools (the same as former IMF Leader Maximo Dominique Strauss Kahn), before he was lead astray (you know about it, women, rock n’ roll, post 68 ideology and a fastrack option to power, good food and leather chairs without risk with Public Services).

Frenchonomics : the Good News for Euro(land) is, the French are Back at School

The French would not miss a single day of their “summer holiday”, which can last anywhere between one and several months according to wheather and other so French issues, but when it’s “rentrée” time, they usually come back with a wide smile.

Frenchonomics : let’s Hope with H…ollande

The good news in Paris, France, is that hope is at the corner of the street (with demonstrators at the end), and nobody burns cars in town (until winter, usually). But it might be slightly over-optimistic to consider that all lights are green, right now.

Frenchonomics “à la Sauce #Hollande” in Châlons en #Champagne

France is at crossroads between the Wine, or “ClubMed” Europe, with Portugal, Greece, Spain, Italy … and  Beer, or Serious Euroland, with Germany, Finland, the Netherlands … Now, President Hollande knows where to go, but he needs a scapegoat.

Frenchonomics “à la #Royal” in Poitou-Charentes

Please, some real customers should buy the “made in Poitou” small electric car. Not only to keep the former Heuliez workers and factory going on in spite of the going getting real tough for everybody. But to keep Ségolène Royal busy around there.
