Depardieu is … French, et alors ?

Let’s watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0vyMuAkOYQ

Depardieu is (and speaks) French, and much worse than that, but what an actor !

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.

My goodness ! France at war against talent, now ?

la-une-choc-des-inrocksIs France killing art and passion ? Fighting against its own artists and talented people ? Read more about it here : http://renaudfavier.com/2013/01/16/si-armstrong-balance-a-la-tv-faudra-til-delocaliser-le-tour-de-france-comme-depardieu-renault-ou-le-dakar/

Bonus : but it looks like it, doesn’t it ?

 

Is #France already at war again ? In #African Sahara again ?

hollande_guerre_liberation

Some French planes seem to be bombing some rebels in Sahara on behalf of the government of Mali, with the strong moral support of the United Nations, with African, Maghreb and other international partners. Is France art war in Western Africa ?
article_photo_1358017826514-3-HD

A French boat seem to be cruising somewhere close to Somalia and France is said to have lost some soldiers and a hostage there is a rescue operation that failed. Would France be fighting something or someone in non French speaking Eastern Africa ?

On the other hand, some say, that due to high housings costs in Paris and low availability of free land in the countryside (plus snow at night on French airports), in view of diplomatic issues in Syria and losses in translation in Somalia, the French may have decided to resettle their refugees from Afghanistan in friendly Northern Mali, in the middle of nowhere in the deserts of Africa, where the climate is better in winter, and where there is a lot of hot sand and available housing, now that the terrorists have killed and expelled most regular inhabitants over the last 9 months of “open bar” or so in what could have been Azawad, if not simply Mali, but has tuned into something else. Could a recent French political initiative make technical sense, for a change ?

But there it cannot be as simple as that … with France, there must be something more (or less) glamorous.

Mali_Le_point_sur_l_intervention-a3ea4510f0404adafa6a6ea92603aa86

Something more … French

mali-pour-francois-hollande_5ie3h_2gba6r

But what else ?

France Mali Fighting

Some Franco-French post-Françafrican Francofolies ? A new “certaine idée de la France en Afrique” ?

1775128_3_8f51_francois-hollande-et-valerie-trierweiler-a_f45c330759fc5cc6186445a4b5263b73

Or just some Franco-French Gauloiseries ? (Some say, the second biggest Malian town, after Bamako, is in Paris suburbs)

Anyway, the entrepreneurs who have not left the country over the last decades seem afraid. Is France struggling against French creators and businesspeople with a view to attract foreign investors ? Is France at war against French success in France ?

The few artists and other French sportspeople not yet living in America because of the climate, Switzerland for the better snow, London due to the great weather, china for the better football or Belgium fort the better beer, and not stuck to France for subventions or health care are escaping to Russia or looking for Qatari free zones in Paris, now. Is France at war against French culture and sport ?

And old women and grey haired politicians seem so sad in the streets of Paris …

And some political activists are brutally murdered in Paris downtown.

Maybe the government’s spokeperson could tell why there were no fireworks in, Paris for New Year if France is at war, what war, where war, why war, and against what or whom ?

Bonus : the answer and weather forecast my friend, are blowing in the wind …

meteo-guerre-civile

Wouldn’t the world be nicer if somebody gave a Green Card to Gérard #Depardieu ?

Green Card

Of course, our world will survive if Depardieu escapes to grey Belgium, white Russia or anywhere else where people from France can get a red carpet welcome, if they can afford a palace and a few glasses of Champagne. But 2013 could be nicer.

Renaud Favier – December, 13th, 2012 – Café du matin à Paris

Some additional e-reading may be needed about artists, politicians, our common world, Europe, Euro-nomics, France, Frenchonomics, the options for future Competitiveness in France in spite of all reports, elections, airports, funerals and funerals of reports, airports or elections …
… about French Politics, French Wine, French Climate, French Changes and other sad issues that may be of interest even if of little importance for the real XXIst century in the world.
Please click on hereafter pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on Fox TV and let others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times or the Economist.

            

Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).
