Foreign Investment In France Crashes 77% In 2013 (Most On Record) To 26 Year Lows

Tyler Durden's picture

When your manufacturing industry unions kidnap their business leaders, taxes reach extremes of duress, industrial production limps lower and unemployment hits record highs; it is hardly surprising that the world is a little nervous of piling its hard-printed cash into your country. But in the case of France, data reported by the UN shows the biggest collapse in foreign direct investment ever. Figaro reports that FDI fell to EUR 5.7 billion - a drop of over 75% year-over-year - and the lowest since 1987. Ironically, Spain's FDI rose 37% and Germany's quadrupled... Is France an Emerging Market now?

It the muslims stupid.  There 50 million muslims in europe with the goal of destroying western civilization. 80% are on welfare, having 8 kids per woman, with multipe wives, all financed by welfare fraud. From 1990 to 2010 they extorted 800 billion in welfare fraud. 

When you calculate the economic drain on Europe, it is obvious why the economy crashed. Islamic Jihad is winning all the battles while all of you are looking in the wrong direction.

    7,500 Germans have been murdered by Muslims since the Berlin wall fell – but Muslims demand curriculum on “anti-Islam crimes” Posted on December 27, 2012 7,500 Germans Murdered, 3 million Attacked By Muslims

    It has been estimated that 7,500 Germans have been murdered by ‘aliens’ (mainly Muslim Turks) since the Berlin wall fell in 1990. The German media and politicians are silent about this. In a backlash nine immigrantswere killed in Eastern Germany between 2000-2006. The deaths of a few kebab sellers has gained objection and shock through the country, and condemnation from politicians while 7,500 names of victims to Muslim violence is kept fully silent – and no one objects.

    But it doesn’t end there. Apart from approximately 7,500 murders there are 3 million violent attacks by German Muslim immigrants on the natives since 1990. Each week 7 are killed by mainly Muslim immigrants and about 3,000 Germans are subject to some form of physical abuse or assault per week by Muslims. Needless to say, the Muslim violence against Germans is fueling support for right-wing groups.

    Let’s put this in perspective: More than twice the people have been killed by Muslim immigrants in Germany than the combined number of U.S. soldiers and UK soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Do we read about it in the papers? Have you heard anything at all about this fact?

    http://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/7500-germans-have-been-mu...

     


    Country, Muslim population, Muslim % of population, Percentage (%) of World Muslim population

     

     France, 4,704,000, 7.5, 0.3

     Germany, 4,119,000, 5, 0.3

     

     

    Germany is in almost as bad a shape as France. Germany is in no position to go to France and help them out.  Allthe menthat could have done so have been murdered by muslims. Of course, if France had not been so stupid as to bring muslims into their country in the first place, their economy would have been just fine and would not need help.

    Muslims in positions of power have prevented compilation of total number of Frenchmen murdered by muslims. So that the number from Germany and extrapolate. It comes to 8,565 since the Berlin wall fell.

    Short opportunities in France abound.  There will be no cure for the muslim jihad attacks anytime soon.  The muslims cut the economic jugler vein of France.  France is bleeding out now.  The extermination of the French people is the price they pay for their stupidity in inviting the muslims into their country.
