Congratulations to François Hollande

Not just for having won the presidency in France, but also for scaring the wealthy out of the country. I am sure that the resulting reduced tax base will do wonders for the French government’s ability to collect revenue, and that a flight of the successful from France will do wonders for the French economy.

Or, you know, not.

Just when you thought that Europe could not have more problems . . .

    On the bright side, the exodus of “Francaises riches” may very well end up replacing a lot of the haute cuisine in Manhattan that Bloomberg scared off with his salt nannying.

    And not just in Manhattan. 

    Montreal is hardly Manhattan. Nor do we offer many of opportunities of the United States. Yet when I cross the street to buy a baguette,I often chat with owner of the bakery who is French. 

    Astounding as it is to those of us to live here, there have been many people who’ve fled the over-bureaucratized society in France to settle here. And that was before Hollande. who many of them voted for ,instituted some his pie in the sky schemes.
