Can France be reformed? (part 2)

With coffers empty, France’s Socialists raise the retirement age and float the idea of a new carbon tax. But is France really stuck in "tax hell", as business leaders claim? François Picard’s panel argues over the French model and Brussels’ push to get the state to wind down its huge stake in the economy.

  • Leonidas KALOGEROPOULOS, Entrepreneur and Vice-president, Ethic;
  • Philippe CORDERY, Socialist Party Member of the French Parliament;
  • Gérard DUSSILLOL, Finance Expert, Thomas More Institute;
  • Stéphanie ANTOINE, France 24 Business Editor.
