"My message is : spend, spend, spend. Please, spend as much as possible," said Kristalina Georgieva, during a panel virtual organized jointly by Globsec, the Montaigne Institute and Bruegel, the think tanks in europe. "But keep the receipts. And keep in mind that we can't get out of it without growth", she added.

It welcomed the swift reaction of governments with aid totalling some 10,000 billion dollars, ten times more than during the great recession of 2008. The international monetary Fund must publish on the 24th of June its new forecasts for global growth.

Better to spend the public's money

Its leader had already warned that these forecasts will be worse than expected in April when the Fund forecast a contraction of the gross domestic Product of 3% this year. On Monday, she said that a "majority" of countries will see their gdp growth forecast reviewed downwards, while a "small group" of countries will see their revised estimate on the increase.

"I quite agree that we must be very careful not to remove the support (financial) too quickly", has also insisted the leader. "Don't forget that we did after the global financial crisis (2008), and this has been, in a way unintended, negative consequences for some time", she added. Support efforts are all the more crucial as the crisis caused by the pandemic has increased the inequality.

But no ! The French already consume too much compared to the wealth they create. It is necessary to first produce more, produce value, to pay off our debts, and in 3rd only to consume and spend. This board is more aimed at the Germans.

Spend by buying Chinese, it doesn't benefit the French production. It is necessary to buy, but certainly French.
