This is soooo true. Most people in France don't have any clue about economics; maybe the only economists they know are Keynes and Marx. You don't get that far with that...
I especially like what this teacher says after her internship at Danone ! She suddently discovers that companies are not monsters and that a lot of people actually like working there! I know most state jobs are very frustrating, but then people believe it must be even worse in companies; especially students because they've never seen something else.
My parents are a good example: My father works for a company, my mother for the state. And both admit, it looks much better in the company.
Anyway, I'm not that negative because the opinions of the French toward liberal economy is changing very fast by now. At least that's my impression.
