If you're like me, you've been wondering if French youths are as economically ignorant as they appeared to be on the recently televised riots over a new French labor law that would have increased their ability to find work. Under pressure from the rabble, Chirac was forced to send the law to the trash bin. Now before you think that the French are just lazy bastards hoping to avoid actually working, here's a report that suggests it is a matter of education.
Of course, now I'm wondering how many Stateside politicians were educated in France.
(Thanks to Tom Walls, a perspicacious observer of international economic folly for tipping me off on this.)
