    France: Republican primary...

    Formed President Nicolas Sarkozy is out so now the centre right have a choice between two former Prime Ministers; François Fillon & Alan Juppe.

    Given the lack of unity within the French Socialist Party it looks odds on that the final round of the Presidential election in May 2017 will be a choice between the centre right & far right.

    If the baggage surrounding Fillon & Juppe alarms the electorate one cannot ignore the chance of Marine Le Pen.

    However, I imagine the combination of left wing voters and centre right will block her path.

    How much can central banks actually do?: Jakobsen

    Steen Jakobsen
    Saxo Bank chief economist Steen Jakobsen provides his view on the current situation concerning central banks. He thinks that monetary policy can be a support to the economy in the short term. But in the long term, a low interest policy can undermine productivity. So macro does not do anything positive for the economy. Jakobsen suggests that investment, productivity and innovation is the solution.

    French socialism is at a crossroads and all the indications are that they will not be solved in time for next year's presidential elections leaving the left wing marooned until at least 2022.

    'destructionism' is a good term to use for the EU's socialist policies of wealth destruction.
