France

Ouverte ou fortresse

Ms. Le Pen and Mr. Macron represent a repudiation of the current political status quo. A victory for Mr. Macron would be evidence that liberalism still appeals to europeans. A victory for Ms. Le Pen would make France poorer, more insular and nastier. Is she pulls France out of the euro it would trigger a financial crisis and doom a union that has promoted peace and prosperity in Europe for six decades. Putin would love that. Ms. Le Pen party has received an important loan from a Russian bank and Mr. Macron organization has suffered more than 4000 hacking attacks. Polls show Ms Le Pen is winning the first round but losing the run-off, but anything could happen and polls where not accurate in relation to Brexit and Mr. Trump. France has shaken the world before. It could do so again...
