Hide / Show Abstract

Given the sharp slowdown triggered by unresolved European sovereign-debt problems, France may have entered a short, shallow recession. Real GDP is projected to grow by just 0.3% in 2012 before accelerating to about 1.5% in 2013. Job-creation prospects have deteriorated, and the unemployment rate is projected to increase to 10.4% in end-2012 before stabilising in 2013. As economic slack increases, inflation should fall to around 1% in 2013.
