    The Economist has a telling graph comparing the French attitude toward capitalism with other nations around the world (scroll down to the chart entitled "A bas le capitalisme!"): http://economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=6740337

    I love this line from the article:

    For the past 20 years, the mainstream political choice has been between a form of socio-Gaullism embodied by President Jacques Chirac (who last year described liberalism as a greater threat than communism) and an archaic socialism that fails to understand, or at least to explain, that wealth needs to be created before it can be shared.
