Daniel Waldenström about the French elections


Like in all of the Western countires, growth is low in France and, among other things, automation poses challenges for the economy, said Daniel Waldentröm in Ekonomiekot Lördag (Swedish Public Radio). He explained that there are three presidential candidates that have presented more or less serious economic programs in the presidential campaign: Emmanuel Macron, Francois Fillon and Benoit Hamon.

EU membership and the labor market have been two key issues in the election process. Daniel Waldenström explains that all of the candidates want to reduce the high unemployment rate and that young people rarely get non-temporary employment.
