Francois Hollande – One thing that makes France…


“One thing that makes France different from other countries is the tradition of social solidarity. People from all backgrounds and political positions are willing to contribute for services and protection of society as a whole – but on the condition that money is being spent effectively and that everyone is paying their part.”
-Francois Hollande

Francois Hollande – I don’t want euro bonds…


“I don’t want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn’t the same thing. Let’s call them ‘project bonds’ instead of euro bonds.”
-Francois Hollande
