Ihe big survey of the week is devoted to Google. Romain Gubert took an interest in the strategy of the American giant to weave its web within the French elite. They are ex-members of ministerial cabinets or former journalists and must help Google defend its interests in a French market which “represents 5% of the company’s turnover and… 90% of the shit”, according to what is rumored in the corridors of the French subsidiary.
CASEOur major surveysNew campaign week: if Valérie Pécresse drops out in the polls after her half-hearted meeting, if Yannick Jadot tries to change the image of the punitive Greens in ecology “of pleasure”, or that Emmanuel Macron is still slow to declare himself, it is once again to the right of the right that we are fighting or inveighing against each other.

War in Mali
Present in Mali since 2013 as part of the anti-jihadist fight, France has decided to withdraw, pushed out by the Malian junta. Emmanuel Macron had already decided to begin in the summer of 2021 a reduction in the French workforce in favor of a less visible regional system. In the coming weeks, the question of logistics to leave Mali in the best conditions and avoid the American fiasco in Afghanistan, last summer, will arise.

Report of the Court of Auditors
This is a long awaited and feared moment! The annual report of the Court of Auditors. The 2022 edition is the last report published by the sages of rue Cambon on the state of public finances before the presidential election. The opportunity to make a final assessment of the management of the outgoing president before the annual audit on the outlook for public finances, traditionally expected in June. The findings show the extent of the adjustment of the accounts that will have to be made if the future head of state intends to stabilize the public debt at the end of his mandate. Because for the time being, public spending is increasing rapidly. Too much ? The economy department of Point decrypts this document and reveals how Bercy is preparing the budget trajectory for the next five-year term.
