France’s president threatens to nationalise a steelworks
A SENSE of déjà vu struck France this week, as a Socialist government threatened to nationalise a steelworks to stop a multinational company from closing part of it. Cue memories of the early 1980s, when François Mitterrand took banks and industrial companies into public ownership. This time a threat by Arnaud Montebourg, the firebrand industry minister, was reinforced by François Hollande, the first Socialist president since Mitterrand. Before a meeting on November 27th with Lakshmi Mittal, the boss and main shareholder of ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steelmaker, Mr Hollande said that nationalisation was “on the agenda”. Politicians across the board also supported temporary state control.
ECB Wins Ruling to Deny Access to Secret Greek Swap Files
The European Central Bank will be allowed to keep private files showing how Greece used derivatives to hide its debt after defeating the first court challenge using the bloc’s freedom of information rules.
“Disclosure of those documents would have undermined the protection of the public interest so far as concerns the economic policy of the European Union and Greece,” the EU General Court in Luxembourg said today, rejecting a request by Bloomberg News initially filed in August 2010.
Buen fin de semana.
