This case focuses on macroeconomic policy in France during the period 1981-93. The early socialist attempt at re-inflating the economy during 1981-82 is critically reviewed, suggesting lessons that go beyond the case of France. The case then reviews the Franc’s stabilisation and the concomitant rise in unemployment over 1983-93.
