Laurent Fabius reports a conversation he had with Marine Le Pen, who he invited as party leader to the Quai d’Orsay several months ago. “I had a conversation with her who confirmed that her economic theories do not hold up.”
He cites the example of the quitting from the euro advocated by the FN . “The debt of France are denominated in euro. An exit from the euro, with the re-adoption of the Franc would result in a loss of value of the franc at least 20 to 25% compared to the euro. This would defeat the French of much of their purchasing power, and the state would be faced with huge interest rates, including the paralysis of our economy, and the explosion of unemployment, “says Laurent Fabius. “I said during our interview:” Madam, what you propose is to jump from the airplane without a parachute. ” She said in substance: “Why not? ‘” Says the minister.
