Those who spout radical economic transformation need look no further for an agenda of action than that of President Macron of France, who is putting Europe’s most moribund socialist economy through that process.

He started by reforming collective bargaining to release the job-creating power of small business and is now busy with privatisation. The forces of reaction, unions and socialists, have to stomach it because of the unemployment levels.

If you want to be radical, the best place to start is with taboo areas that hold back growth.
