The verity of austerity as 2013 French economic outlook study points to grim year ahead

|  Par Laurent Mauduit

The French National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies, INSEE, last week published its economic forecast for the first half of 2013, predicting France will remain on the edge of recession with zero growth, ever-rising unemployment, a collapse of purchasing power and consumption in tatters.
