L'article qui fait le buzz en ce moment (beaucoup de commentateurs se concentrent sur des imprécisions sans importance pour faire oublier le fond):
"It’s a stretch, but what is happening today in France is being compared to the revocation of 1685. (...) The Huguenots, nearly a million strong before 1685, were thought of as the worker bees of France. They left without money, but took with them their many and various skills. They left France with a noticeable brain drain. Since the arrival of Socialist President François Hollande in 2012, income tax and social security contributions in France have skyrocketed. (...) As a result, there has been a frantic bolt for the border by the very people who create economic growth – business leaders, innovators, creative thinkers, and top executives. They are all leaving France to develop their talents elsewhere. (...) Moscovici was looking very happy with himself. Does he realize Rome is burning? (...) Granted, there is much to be grateful for in France. (...) But the past two years have seen a steady, noticeable decline in France.(...) young graduates see no future and plan their escape to London. (...) When I began to look around, I saw people taking wild advantage of the system. (...) France, being a nation of navel-gazers à la Jean-Paul Sartre, refuses to look outward, toward the global village. (...) At the World Economic Forum each year at Davos, France is always noticeably underrepresented. Last year, one junior minister, Fleur Pellegrin, came because, apparently, she is the only fluent English speaker in the government. (...) From a senior United Nations official who is now based in Africa: “The best thinkers in France have left the country. What is now left is mediocrity.” From a chief legal counsel at a major French company: “France is dying a slow death. It’s like a rich old family being unable to give up the servants.” (...) The government is so inward looking and the state fonctionnaires who run it are so divorced from reality that it has become a country in denial."
