Minister of Stimulus

Eric Woerth has been promoted from secretary of state in charge of the budget to the new post of "stimulus minister." Next thing you know, he'll be sitting in a bathtub doing Cialis ads. Woerth's new position puts him in something like the same role as Larry Summers in the US. As head of the National Economic Council, Summers will presumably be coordinating the stimulus spending expected to begin soon after Obama takes office. Woerth will be doing the same in France. It will be interesting to see how closely firms receiving aid will be monitored in the two countries.
