France growing more unhappy with new leader
Do not focus on the "transactions".
Read the article and then build a model of the arguments used inside and then apply these arguments to what you are likely to hear in the United States.
The key point that I don't understand is the argument in which AUSTERITY CUTS are either:
- Blamed for the present pain
- Blamed because - after 1 to 2 years of implementation - they have FAILED to provide the promised economic uplift.
Chalk this up to the mandate to take a "Time Line" and a "GEO-positioning tool" with you prior to entering a debate.

If you can't affix your debate opponent to a specific set of beliefs and promises that he has committed to - it is a waste of time debating.

Instead of "FAIRNESS" and the assessment of the United States as an "unfair economy" - those who aspire a higher standard of living should adopt "ORGANIC DEVELOPMENT" - which the focus being on making absolute gains through the ORGANIZATIONS that they keep voting people into power to control.
Today we have long bypassed the rhetoric from forces like Bayard Rustin who claimed a "chicken in every pot" IF the voting bloc stayed together to make a run on behalf of the "progressive party".
