France - Current Account (billions of Euros)

Although economic growth notched higher in the third quarter, matching analysts’ expectations, a late-year economic jolt now appears increasingly unrealistic. A weaker-than expected recovery in domestic demand saw household spending rebound on higher expenditures for energy and transport amid the return to normal temperatures and an end to public-transit strikes. Moreover, corporate investment supported upbeat fixed-capital spending and offset a slump in residential investment. On the external front, exports accelerated. Available fourth-quarter data points to similar year-end dynamics: Private-sector gains appeared to stabilize in October, although economic sentiment trended lower. On the political front, Emmanuel Macron’s approval ratings sank lower in November amid cross-country fuel-tax protests and his faltering popularity has increasingly called into question his ability to push through long-overdue economic reforms.
