UK Independant: French elite hold country back

The Independent has a story about the French elites holding the country back so they can prosper. They ask the question: "Is French elitism is holding the country back"

An interesting and simpleminded question, but fun to ponder.

He is promoting his book.  They always are that uses a small data set of French government officials.

As we always say, the real story is much more complex  First, even the premise of the story is wrong.  What exactly is the country being help back from ?  Are missing out on some great piece of pollution or low paying job that other have ?

What they don't say is "Growth" and that they believe Growth lead to prosperity.  And prosperity for who ?

Same old story.
