The economy

France has the fifth largest economy in the world, with predicted growth of 1.8 per cent over the next few years

The French government doesn't have a great record in forcing through economic reforms. In 2006 they were forced to backtrack attempts to push through a series of pretty modest labour market reforms after much opposition from students and in 2007 Nicholas Sarkozy's first forays into economic reform provoked similarly heated reaction from the French public. Surprisingly, he was elected in May 2007 on just this ticket, promising reform and a reduction in public spending.

The French economy in 2008

But despite unrest at home the French economy is as strong as ever. Even though Prime Minister Francois Fillon said France was 'bankrupt' and would keep sliding down the global growth league unless it got a grip on its finances, even though European Central Bank president Jean-Claude Trichet noted that France's massive and unreformed state sector is the biggest in the EU, consuming 53% of GDP, and even though the US-led credit crunch is still affecting worldwide economic forecasts, the French economy shows little sign of being unduly affected.
