Pierre Moscovici served as France's Finance Minister in the Socialist government of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault from May 2012 until March of this year. His appointment, following the election of François Hollande, was supposed to herald a change in Europe's economic policies. At the height of the eurozone crisis, Moscovici sought to convince his German partners that too much austerity had damaged Europe.
