Protectionnisme : la tentation permanente

Promis, juré, ils ne se laisseront pas rattraper par les vieux démons. “Nous nous sommes engagés aujourd’hui à faire tout ce qui est nécessaire pour (…) promouvoir le commerce mondial et rejeter le protectionnisme”, ont assuré les dirigeants du G20, jeudi 2 avril, à l’issue du sommet de Londres. Dont acte.

Cette déclaration de principes serait toutefois plus crédible si les principaux poids lourds de la planète n’avaient, depuis quelques mois, remis à l’honneur des pratiques qu’ils s’évertuent à brocarder. Comme le triplement annoncé des taxes américaines sur le roquefort, la fermeture du marché chinois au porc irlandais ou l’établissement par le gouvernement indonésien d’une liste noire de 500 produits étrangers.  Afficher tout

Egon, a protégé of Gustav Klimt, is most recognised for his extreme artistic exploration of the human form. Schiele displays somewhat jolting images of fetishism, eroticism and mortality that are pornographic in nature.

Eagon’s work is influential to modern artist such as Peter Chung, creator of
Æon Flux (1992)

Obama’s Passover Seder

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama hosted close friends and staff at a private White House meal Thursday evening to mark Passover. It’s part of the new president’s effort to reach out to Jewish voters.

The White House said the Seder meal was traditional, including matzo, bitter herbs, a roasted egg and greens in the family dining room in the executive mansion. The evening also featured the reading of the Haggadah, the religious text of the holiday.

Passover began at sundown Wednesday. It celebrates the Jewish exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery.

Among those invited was Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s closest advisers, and family friend Eric Whitaker, who was visiting from Chicago and attended a Seder last year with the campaign. First lady Michelle Obama and the family’s two daughters also attended.

The staff guest list included aides from the campaign trail who marked last year’s Passover at the Sheraton hotel in Harrisburg, Pa. Obama’s personal aide, Reggie Love; Michelle Obama’s deputy chief of staff, Melissa Winter; personal aide Dana Lewis and associate social secretary Samantha Tubman all received invitations.

Also on the guest list were Eric Lesser, a personal aide to senior adviser David Axelrod, and his family. Lesser worked during the New Hampshire primary and later handled baggage for traveling reporters. White House videographer Arun Chaudhary _ a constant presence on the trail _ landed invitations for his family.

Others in the exclusive group included Michelle Obama’s counsel and friend Susan Sher; Herbie Ziskend, a staff assistant to Vice President Joe Biden’s policy and economic advisers; and White House deputy director of advance and special events Lisa Kohnke.

White House aides said they believe it was the first president-hosted Seder at the White House.

Meet Mr. French

Mr. FrenchWelcome to French Fusion. This is a transitional period, and as a result, postings will be sporatic and a bit unconventional. If you can be patient with my bumbling around,  I will find my way, I hope you enjoy the journey and are introduced to some things you had not previously considered.

Best,

Justin French
