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).

The (#Green) #French should soon be (Back) at Work for a (to) #Change (#France)

Fifty-Fifty, fair enough, but does it work ?

Everybody in France (and other places where people think a sinking Europe is a bad customer and could be an awful debtor) cross fingers, that after their never ending French elections and summer holiday, the French are ready for real work, now.

French Lagarde (IMF Boss) & French Lamy (WTO Boss)

Everybody, even out of France, expects the French Government is seriously at work, now. Not just playing “serious games” …

Cécile Duflot, August 2012, at French Green Summer Camp. Was elected “Député” of Paris thanks to Socialist/Ecologist agreement at 2012 French presidential election. Currently Minister of Housing in François Hollande Government

Not like the French handball champions who deserved a long holiday after their gold medal celebrated by getting drunk and devastating a TV studio where the were interviewed, neither like their national football team that has become the shame of France and laughing stock of the planet with or without playing, nor like their patriots who were not in London to support France at the Games, but are real red government carpet fans who got free tickets for the one way plane or train to London the Oympics as almost every French tax-exiled in England everybody in London …

Like the French President.

Well, well, well …

But not like the French Ecologists, whose boss is quite desperate at their annual 3-day meeting somewhere in the French countryside …

Not well, not well, not well …

… as he sees the naked Green France.

Well, well, well …

The Green France with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or not decided about the glasses …

Well …

… or whatever works, with or without glasses …

Definitely not well …

… or whoever walks talking romance or talks walking romance all the time instead of working …

As well as can be …

France, so Green, so French, So Good, So Fresh … and hopefully back at work soon(er or later).

Never mind … it’s just Grass …

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green” (but not vice-versa).

Yes, we Europeans made it through July 2012 ! Let’s Survive August, now …

Let’s enjoy summertime as long as it lasts. And don’t panic just because the weather looks like winter in Northern Europe (with the exception of sunny London), like Hell in Southern Europe, and like … nothing in France. Let’s enjoy Holiday.

World Serious Games Begin, Now in London (and Euroland) : Beware the Brits (and Others) !

The French have enjoyed  some “Divines Surprises” for a while, with more gold medals than any other European nation at the Games and low interest rates on international markets in spite of the loss of their AAA and the victory of their socialists.

Pourvu que ça dure (as long as it lasts) …

#Euro Boys … Much Talk, Little Work, Summer Job in London … and Frankfurt

Mario Draghi is a good (banker ?) player. Nobody really knows what game he is playing at the moment, but all the big guys seem very enthusiastic about it. Or almost all the big guys. Because Angela Merkel recommends more work and less talk.
