Sputnik Interviews Rep of Cheminade Campaign: “Why Fillon and Le Pen Mean Blood and Tears for France”
In an interview given to Sputnik on Nov. 29,the Editor in Chief of the French newspaper Nouvelle Solidarité, Christine Bierre, expressed the views of Presidential candidate Jacques Cheminade's on the primary victory of François Fillon two days before.
The good news, Bierre said, is that
"François Fillon's foreign policies would be a break with those of François Hollande, which have been, with very few exceptions, practically dictated by Obama and his British allies. A regular participant to the Valdai Club meetings and favorable to a healthy, if not uncritical collaboration, with Vladimir Putin, Fillon announced already he will act to lift the sanctions against Russia and collaborate with President Putin to re-establish stability in Syria with President Bashar al-Assad and eliminate ISIS [Daesh]."
The bad news, she went on, is his economic program, which she proceeded to outline.
While both Fillon and Marine Le Pen, the candidate he will likely face off, want better relations with a certain independence on the world diplomatic stage, neither has the economic policies needed to break with the Western oligarchy and the “top financial powers operating out of Wall Street and the City of London”, Bierre said.
Sputnik then asked about the campaign of Jacques Cheminade, who is running for President and has the support of the Solidarité et Progrès party. The article continues that Cheminade:
“calls for 'for a strict separation between useful banks (deposits and credit to the economy) and investment banks (speculation),' she emphasized drawing parallels between Cheminade's concept and the U.S. Glass-Steagall Act. 'Following such a reorganization, a re-industrialization policy will be urgently needed to restart the economies,' Cheminade says, as quoted by Bierre.”
The article also notes that
“Cheminade proposes to reestablish Europe's original central banks and return to their original currencies, while keeping the euro as a common currency. He is calling 'for pulling out of the euro and of the EU Treaty (1992-2017), and rebuilding Europe around the core nations that founded Europe,' the journalist emphasized highlighting the importance of European nations taking over control of their monetary policies. 'In order to free themselves from the grip of the Western predatory financial centers, France and Europe, says Mr. Cheminade, should orient towards the BRICS and support the strong dynamic created by China and Russia in particular, in the last years, to create the credit institutions of a new world economic order (AIIB, New Development Bank, Silk Road Fund, etc.),' Bierre stressed. 'His approach, if compared to that of Russian economists, is based 'on the issuance of public credit for research and industrial development, of the type promoted by [Russian economist] Sergei Glazyev,'' the French journalist underscored.”
