France country profile 2017 : economic outlook, weaknesses and strengths, structural reforms

- June 2017

09/06/2017

Ahead of the French parliamentary elections, we review the main economic issues the new government will have to tackle. In this report, we assess the main weaknesses and strengths of France on a macroeconomic perspective. We review the state of structural reforms and their first results. We finally identify the challenges ahead for the new president and the relevance of his economic program.

Up to now, the rebound of activity in France has mainly been a story of increase in purchasing power of households helped by a decrease in oil prices and the drop in interest rates. Those different impulses are nevertheless fading away and have to be replaced by a self-sustaining process associated with employment growth and a regular increase in productive investment.

France has a more stable trend of economic growth than most other countries in Europe but also a softer one.
- On a supply side perspective, the very lacking engine for growth in the last decade is productivity.
- On the demand side, a lack of competitiveness has put the most severe drag on growth for almost two decades. Any recovery will be highly reliant on the ability to restore cost and quality competitiveness.

Challenges : Taxation, Competitiveness, employment ...
As regards the main issues that the French economy has to address (competitiveness, public finance and high structural unemployment), we focus on fiscal aspects, trends of cost and non-cost competitiveness, labor market issues and ways of reform of retirement pensions schemes.

Le Brésil au printemps 2017 : enfin la reprise ?

- mai 2017

24/05/2017

Le Brésil traverse depuis 2014 la pire récession de son histoire contemporaine. A court terme, les indicateurs économiques révèlent davantage une stabilisation qu’une véritable reprise. La croissance sur l’année 2017 devrait être positive mais très faible, de l’ordre de 0,5%. A moyen terme, la reprise sera limitée par les failles structurelles de l’économie brésilienne, auxquelles s’ajoute une instabilité politique chronique.
