Rebuttal Re Hollande
I've characterized François Hollande's recent proposals re more autonomy for the social partners in negotiations as a "neoliberal" version of social democracy. Bernard Girard vigorously disagrees, and he makes a good case. So I will pull in my horns pending further clarification from Hollande of what his program really is. Thus far, like Romain Pigenel, I've found the Socialist debate lackluster. I hope that there will be some more pointed exchanges between the candidates before October, and once the DSK ruckus fades from the front pages (may it please the gods).
