Taxing the wealth out of the Country

De Decker, the mayor, recalls that Arnault said nothing about trying to avoid France’s super-tax when the two met late last year but that he did complain about widespread hostility at home toward wealthy people.

De Decker says Arnault told him: “In France, they don’t like entrepreneurs. They don’t like successful businesses. They hate success. It’s a jealous nation.

“And if they are still going like that, I prefer to come to Belgium.”

This was said in reaction to France’s new 75% tax on the wealthy. And they wonder why business leaders are fleeing.
