Éminence grisaille

Jack-of-all-Trades consultant, philosopher, and blowhard extraordinaire, French Secular High Priest to the 5th Republic Jacques Attali blubbers some easy fluff about the current financial market turbulence and states that it is all the fault of US banks and their scandalous lending practices. Guess his investment portfolio took a hit. Either that or he's on the rag.


He has some BNP "funds" to unload.

Libération PropagandaStaffel bemoans the lack of regulation and the
increase of competition among financial markets. It's true that the French know all about regulation and very little about competition.
