France, under pressure from Germany and the European Union to meet the E.U.'s straightjacket requirement of deficits of no more than three percent of GDP (whether or not depression looms) informed the E.U. that they will not hit this target until 2017.

The first conclusion I drew was that there must be something amiss in their way of thinking, at least about political matters, that made them ineducable.
