Valérie Rabault: “We must add 50 to 70 billion euros in investments over two years”

Is the executive’s decision to launch an investment plan at the start of the school year a sign that the recovery plan of 100 billion euros was not not enough?

The recovery plan has, in my eyes, two pitfalls: first it is sprinkling on 113 scattered measurements. We even talk about hedges! It cannot have a ripple effect on the economy. Then, it does not do things from A to Z. For example, we invest 250 million euros to support the development of electric charging stations. In Germany, the philosophy is very different. Angela Merkel has planned to spend 3 billion euros for the manufacture of 1 million terminals after a discussion with manufacturers.
