Abstract

As part of EUROPP’s continuing series on the 2012 French presidential elections, Françoise Boucek looks at the economic policies of the two main candidates, incumbent president Nicolas Sarkozy and Socialist leader François Hollande, and finds that they both perpetuate the myth that France’s post-war social model can continue with only minor changes in the face of rising government debt and the Eurozone crisis. She argues that any shifts in support away from the two main candidates in the next two weeks could make for a very interesting outcome to the upcoming elections.
