The candidate has so far not developed much of his proposals in this area. It nevertheless differs on several points from those of its competitor Marine Le Pen.

It is a curious cocktail, liberal and anti-liberal at the same time, precise on certain points and vague on others. So far, it’s true, he hasn’t said a lot.

But on its campaign website (site hosted in California – neither in France nor in London!), On its site, two of the five priorities put forward concern taxes and industry.

The matrix is ​​twofold.

One: internationally, the model is Donald Trump, with the denunciation of free trade, and there Marine Le Pen and part of the left can find their way there. The most salient concrete point is the “Patri-score” -like patriot-, to indicate the origin of the products.

Two: for the domestic economy, inspiration this time is Poujadist, a word that no longer has the pejorative connotation of the past, today we say populist. Eric Zemmour denounces a tax system, I quote, "fromr with the small and weak with the strong, it's Robin Hood in reverse: take from the poor to give to the winners of globalization! ".

For him, _ "the French taxpayer, individual or small family business, is considered by our leaders as a cash cow" - I do not know if General De Gaulle would say that. And he pay homage (I recite) to "France which does not complain and does not break anything".

In short, it is a tone close to that of Marine Le Pen, but we find proposals also defended by the LR candidates: lower production taxes and the CSG on wages.

The problem is that we have zero details on the financing (it is not the only one), we understand that the money will be taken from social benefits taken from foreigners (who pay taxes) and from social fraud supposed to be that of strangers. Is this unconstitutional? Without a doubt.

There is a big difference with Marine Le Pen

He is more liberal, where the RN candidate is very interventionist. "I am not Lenin," he told LCI two months ago, when asked whether it was necessary to save companies.

In addition, he wants to exempt the main residence from wealth tax while Le Pen wants to restore the ISF.

Finally, he promotes retirement at 64 where the candidate wants to return to 60 years. We can clearly see that the electoral target is not the same, popular with one, more entrepreneurial with the other.

In both cases, however, the economy is not the dish -if I dare say - of resistance.
