France's Buyer's Regret
Not so hot on Hollande any more.
France is mired in a stagnating economy. The private sector is under pressure, auto manufacturing is heading into a depression.
Unemployment hit a 13-year high of 10.2 percent, leaving over 3 million people out of work.
Youth unemployment of 22.7 percent, bad as it is, belies the catastrophic jobs situation for young people in ghetto-like enclaves, such as the northern suburbs of Paris.
Gasoline and diesel prices are hovering near record highs. So there are a lot of very unhappy campers.
