Population in France
France - PopulationFirst-quarter growth is expected to have been spared a shellacking; although economic sentiment has failed to meaningfully recover since the eruption of the ‘gilet jaunes’ protests late last year, recent fiscal measures appear to have largely contained the economic fallout. Moreover, consumption and investment proxies hint that a nascent turnaround is afoot domestically. Survey-based readings, however, suggest that sluggishness throughout the Eurozone is set to continue buffeting exports. Hoping to move his political agenda beyond the waning demonstrations, Emmanuel Macron unveiled a second round of concessions to protestors in late April. New tax cuts worth close to EUR 5 billion and to be financed by spending cuts are expected to cushion household spending over the short-term. Analysts, however, are skeptical of the president’s ability to fully pay for them and now see this year’s fiscal deficit at 3.2% of output.
