A Brilliant Idea: Introduce More Taxes
Obviously, Shinzo Abe is not the only economic genius populating the global political scene. There is one man in Europe who has become known for both his perpetually slightly confused mien and his astonishing (for a politician) propensity to keep electoral promises, especially when they concern tax hikes that invariably worsen his country’s economic contraction.
We are of course referring to Francois Hollande, as the title of this post already indicates, whom Gaspard Koenig once characterized so trenchantly as “the ultimate – and probably also terminal – embodiment of the European-style Welfare State”.
One can always hope on that ‘terminal’ point.
