French Election

FLG must admit he is a little scared about the prospect of Hollande winning the French presidency.  He figures there's about a 50-50 chance that Hollande actually goes through with what he has promised on the campaign trail.  FLG gives it 50-50 because Hollande was there for the disaster that was the beginning of the Mitterand government, but on the other hand FLG also believe Hollande, deep in his heart, really is a crazy socialist.

And if Hollande goes through with what he is talking about, then there's about a 50-50 chance that it throws not just France, but the whole Eurozone crisis into a big mess again.  So, if Hollande wins, there's about a 25% chance everything goes to shit.   At least by FLG's reckoning.

The Eurozone is already in deep shit, just inured to the smell.

With or without Hollande, the odds of things going to hell are substantially greater than 25%.
