France's economic rebound

Start

Vincent LorphelinPearson Publishing / Global Village Collection - 224 p - Release date: April 6, 2012

Foreword by Pierre Kosciusko-Morizet, Founder and CEO of PriceMinister

85 innovators, actors of growth and employment, testify. The rebound after the crisis is possible! Thanks to France's innovative strength, it can regain the momentum of sustained growth.

This is the resolutely optimistic and lucid point that Vincent Lorphelin is defending here by giving the floor to 85 remarkably energetic and creative managers of French start-ups and SMEs in a chaotic context. France can recover, as it did at the end of the 19th century, when the Belle Époque succeeded the Great Depression. At a time when the country was thought to be in decline, the abundance of innovations in photography, electricity, automobiles, aviation, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and metallurgy - revealed by the 1889 Universal Exhibition - gave a tremendous boost to the economy. Are we not in the same situation today?

For Vincent Lorphelin, the ten signs that heralded the rebound of 1889 are once again evident in present-day France. He identifies them in this book and illustrates them by presenting 178 emerging sectors and 301 innovations. These examples show to what extent new practices, gains in competitiveness, revaluation of know-how, value creation, exports and France's influence in the world are a formidable lever for growth.

This forward-looking vision provides a panorama of the power of innovation and allows us to discover the multitude of opportunities available to us.
