    I know. When will Liberals wake up and realize it is not 1960 anymore. People can leave much easier now than they once could and there are more places that can compete for the wealthy.

    Some might move to the US, more will move to Switzerland or Brussels.

    As socialist nations start to crumble, other nations will see the error and be more business friendly. I wouldn't count on obamamerica being one of those.

    So - any liberals want to wager on the future of the french economy in the next few years? I'm guessing they won't get nearly as much more revenue as they think and they will have a recession or worse. There are other factors besides taxes, but this is gonna be a deal breaker. Wealthy frenchmen are already leaving in numbers.

    That's a likely outcome. But not forgetting that David Cameron's drawn fire from Hollande's government after promising to "roll out the red carpet" for French businesses, investors and entrepreneurs wanting to avoid the punitive tax hikes of France's incumbent administration.
