    Number Of Unemployed In France Passes 3 Million

    The number of French unemployed has broken through the 3-million barrier for the first time since 1999, the country's leaders say.

    The latest total adds pressure on President Francois Hollande, whose administration is under attack for not doing enough to fix the economy. France's unemployment rate is currently 10 percent.

    Breaking the 3 million mark carries more symbolic importance than economic but it was covered extensively in the French media over the weekend. The Ministry of Employment says the 3-million threshold was crossed in 1996 and again in 1999.

    Employment Minister Michel Sapin confirmed the total on French radio on Sunday and warned that the numbers would likely get worse.

    what went wrong?

    aug 8: France's 75% Tax Could Push Rich Into Mass Exodus - Rich thinking of leaving if 75% tax rate is passed

    even the nyt reported that there is very little revenue to be gained from the 75% tax, it's purpose is "merely symbolic"

    then why impel so many of those with means to flee?

    class warfare never works, it only seeks to divide

    so does barack obama's overwhelming focus on social issues, which we're all gonna see prominently on pimetime tv in charlotte

    party on, progressives

    forward---to where?

    We had a 90% tax rate on the wealthy in the 50's under Eisenhower. I don't think you get the purpose. It's not to tax people at 90%. It's to reroute cash flow so that instead of them cashing out and making money with money via interest rates and whatnot, it encouraged reinvestment in their businesses and dealings which strengthened the economy and manufacturing.

    Yet another The Prof spam thread debunked.

    In other words, communism for the greater good.

    Even Eisenhower admitted this was the problem of the military industrial congressional complex in his farewell speech. It wasn't merely that America was becoming loaded with warhawks, but that American culture was addicted to institutionalization, and creative thinking was dying as people solved problems to become popular, not to become.

    The bottomline is results-oriented policies are anti-social because they ignore how economy is subjectively procedural. Judge people collectively, and subjectivity goes out the window which makes the economy meaningless.

    The United States isn't communist nor was it communist in the 1950's.

    This has to do with the topic of high tax rate how?

    The U.S. is extremely communist. It's our culture to believe in secretive hierarchic collectivism where hard work comes before working smart.

    People also take pride in economic imperfections rather than synchronization. It's an excuse for people to fix what's wrong.

    This has to do with the topic of high tax rate how?

    wut?

    Good luck justifying such a ridiculous claim. Because that's not "thinking". That's flat out making **** up and living in fantasy land.
