Compare the economic performance of France to the US and, say, Sweden, from the start of the Reaganomics experiment up to 2003.

    real GDP/Capita in US in 1980 = $21,335.54
    real GDP/Capita in France in 1980 = $16,217.39
    real GDP/Capita in Sweden in 1980 = $17,164.86

    French incomes are 76% of American incomes in 1980.

    real GDP/Capita in US in 2003 = $34,223.17
    real GDP/Capita in France in 2003 = $22,867.27
    real GDP/Capita in Sweden in 2003 = $24,498.12

    French incomes are 67% of American incomes in 2003.

    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in US = 60.4%
    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in France = 41.0%
    Growth GDP/Capita between 1980 and 2003 in Sweden = 42.7%

    Socialism is making the French poorer, in comparison to the US, over time.
    Thats the best thing about socialism -- its goal is to ensure that everyone suffers equally.

    Besides -- with all that "free" stuff, paid for "by the state", French income doesn't -need- to be as high.

    If your previous post really represent what you think in general then I feel incredibly sorry for you in so many ways you do not understand.

    Anyways, GDP isnt all that matters. And you have to consider that people in the US in average also works 34% more than the French, which actually makes up for the gap.

    Here is where the thread went off track. Comparisons between the US and France.....COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT! This is about Germany and France, have any thoughts on that? Do you know the history between Germany and France, and territorial issues?
