The PS and the Economists
Mediapart investigates which economists are supporting and/or consulting with which candidates. Unsurprisingly, Hollande is surrounded by more economists than any other candidate (my colleague Philippe Aghion gets around: he is listed as backing Hollande while consulting with Royal). Aubry has essentially one prominent economist in her entourage: Daniel Cohen. Royal has, among others, Jacques Attali, which should disqualify her. Montebourg has an anti-globalization team. And Valls has--nobody.
