    ...(moved in early 05 after GWB's reelection), my take is going to be French-centric. And no, I'm not an economist.

    IMHO the French media do not seem to obsess over the US (good or bad) the way the German media do. I don't know why. Perhaps they should.

    When you read the papers here, you come to realize the horrible impact that US businesses have had / are still  having on ordinary French life: it's like a dozen of Bain Capitals and Monsantos have been unleashed on France during the last 10/20 years.

    Buying local companies & firing the workers, GM foods, financial shenanigans, shady business deals are the hallmark of the US' actions here; I've seen it with my own eyes.

    Frankly, if the French did to America what American businesses are doing to France, the Pentagon would be bombing Paris.

    My 2 centimes.
