The Euro Split
The French by contrast has long traditionally been friendlier to inflation, which is why they now complain that the euro is too strong and call fro ECB interest rate cuts.
Charlemange also note the incoherence of the French attacks on the ECB. While calling for more inflationary policies, Nicolas Sarkozy and other French politicians at the same time express worry about the reduction in domestic purchasing power due to rising inflation. Either these politicians are too stupid to comprehend the link between a higher money supply and higher prices or, which is arguably more likely, the attacks on ECB is simply a way for them to blame France's economic problems on some else.
