Following his election in 2017, The Economist depicted French President Emmanuel Macron walking on water. Now, President Macron finds his approval rating hovering around 25% while Yellow Vest protesters continue to take to the streets to oppose his administration. And if that weren’t enough, anti-Semitic incidents in France skyrocketed 74% last year.
A socionomist makes sense of these developments by understanding the social mood. France’s CAC 40 index has gone sideways since Macron took office, and, as the August 2019 issue of The European Financial Forecast noted, the index remains “well short of [its] two biggest peaks of the past 20 years.”
