Achtung, France!

[From the series, Who's the Next Domino to Fall?]

Indeed, leading German economists on Monday told the website of financial daily Handelsblatt that French debt is likely to be downgraded in the months to come.

Certainly if Hollande puts into practice his miracle cures, such as his remedy for improving the national education system..
