Yes, its true — France may decide to go ahead a financial transactions tax, even if Germany doesn’t.Henri Guaino, a special adviser to Sarkozy, told the BFMTV news channel about the government’s plans yesterday (via The Local):
“There will be a decision on financial transaction taxes before the end of January as far as France is concerned,”
“France will set the example on this issue.”
Asked if they will continue even if Germany does not cooperate, Guaino continued:
“It is better if Germany is involved.”
“We will keep discussing it in the coming days and weeks, but France is ready to take the lead on this issue… and hopes it can bring others along.”
Sarkozy is a big fan of the FTT it seems, despite analysts objections.
