ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the French stock market. The resurgence of the French market seems to have positioned the country's politics a little closer to the European mainstream. The re-entry of conservative forces into the arenas of French decision-making will not actually, steer economic policy towards a radically new course. If major privatizations are in the cards, the modernization of the country would facilitate capitalization. Traditionally, private investment patterns in this country favor such conservative vehicles as gold, real estate and term deposits. Foreign investors can currently purchase up to 20 percent of a publicly traded firm through normal channels. France seems well positioned to benefit from the global trend towards deregulation of the financial marketplace.
