Crowdfunding is not as dangerous as you may fear. It’s just crowdfunding, stupid !

No fear

So, normal people can invest (waste ?) their lifetime savings to finance projects that junk-bonders, bankers and government officers won’t waste (invest ?) investors’, customers’ or taxpayers’ money in. It’s just like stock-exchange, but for smaller money.

So, is crowd funding another Wolf of Wall Street, or more stupid than any other way to waste one’s money buying useless, made in Asia, gadgets, invest one’s money in hopeless businesses, or spend the family’s savings in mortgaged housing before the next financial big one ?

Well, who knows … it’s just crowdfunding, stupid !

Tax in France : so what, now ?

Limage-du-jour

No, France is not a tax heaven, whatever tax credits, “niches” and loopholes they may have, grow or invent for entrepreneurs and rich people to stay and create jobs, finance innovation and buy or export “made in France” goods. Not yet.

And some rich and famous with brains, not only quite good football and rather average tennis players, have realized that the French borders, not to mention the Berlin Wall(s), are over.

But no, not all the rich and have of France rush to, or stay in Britain, whatever “Tapis Rouge” here and there.

And things may change in France, thanks to climate change and heavy raining and snowing in Europe.

Things may improve thanks to computers.

As France goes for world’s best practices, benchmark(et)ing and state of the art tax techno and propaganda.

Things may improve step by step, after a few coffee cups in Paris-Bercy …

Things may really improve, if and when French tax ministers read English.

Lenine used to say “The Soviets are communism with electricity”. Nowadays France may be communism with a keyboard and coffee.

Frenchonomics : who buys what (from whom) in #France ?

As the socialists have taken over Elysée Palace, Matignon Hotel and several other prestigious old buildings in Paris and other big French cities, Qatar buys CAC40 and what pays off fast (tax-free) whilst China buys what may help its exports to Europe.

What is for sure, is that the French themselves are not exactly in an investing mood, and don’t have very deep pockets to keep their jewels, these days.

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 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 “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.

Yet another successful Franco-German Summit about Greece

“Shouldn’t we do something ?

Let them swim, it’s their bl… water, after all

Yes, unless they have already sold their sea to China or Qatar and can’t breathe under foreign water

OK, I don’t say nothing about your deficits, you don’t say nothing about my exports, and we discuss Greece later

Deal, let’s enjoy summer and have dinner, now, and we’ll discuss Greece another time, when the weather is less friendly.”

So far, so good, growth is around the European corner.
