  • The yield on 10-year French securities is the highest relative to Spanish debt since April 2010

One thought on “Populism At Work: Sovereign Risk Rises In France

  1. Here we go folks, the socialists are in a better position than most people think. Capitalists have been taken over by “capitals”, those pillars of society who use our political system like their own personal banks. It’s easy when you have dupes willing to “sell” our country for a few crumbs. Always “privatize the profits and make the losses public”, Bailouts are always good for the bottom line…… only for some. China and a moving toward socialistic Europe are laughing at how we have screwed this thing up. If we stop printing $$$$ now the house of cards come tumbling down. So hold on as Trump without a doubt will make it worse, he already has.
